Burnham: Residents speak out over air traffic

Maldon and Burnham Standard: Burnham: Residents speak out over air traffic Burnham: Residents speak out over air traffic

ANGRY Burnham residents have written to their Town Council after the increased frequency and noise of aircraft above their homes.

The Council wrote to Southend airport to seek clarification and confirmation that the flight paths and heights of arriving aircraft and flight paths of departing aircraft are in accordance with the prescribed limits of the appropriate legislation.

Members had hoped that because of the Burnham's position in relation to the river and open farmland to the south, that there would be scope for an adjustment to the flight path to reduce the level of disturbance being experienced by residents.

I follow the flight arrivals on an app on my i pad and this gives the height of the aircraft. The flight which arrives from Belfast at 9.40 am always is far too low and never uses the sea to turn. Southend airport dont give a **** but flights should use air space over the sea where possible . It is a tragedy that the Dengie peninsula and Burnham are suffering from this dreadful noise pollution.
