Constituents may be aware that London City Airport has recently launched a public consultation on its Draft Master Plan for the 2020-2035 period. This document outlines the airport's expansion plans including how they seek to address issues relating to pollution and noise, something which I know is a key issue for those living under the airport’s flight path.
The consultation documents can be accessed online, using the link at the bottom of this article, where constituents will also be able to find information on consultation events. Constituents may also attend the Romford library, where you will be able to view large A3 versions of consultation documents, something which may be helpful to older residents or those with sight issues.
The consultation will run until 20th September and I would be grateful if responding constituents could inform me of their own responses so that I may reflect upon their comments within my own contribution.
