More Heathrow flight paths planned over Streatham - consultation deadline 4 March

Streatham: 47 flights per hour at less than 4,000ft
Aircraft noise over Streatham is set to increase significantly under plans for Heathrow Airport expansion. 

Currently less than 1 in 20 of Heathrow's aircraft movements affects Streatham - but this is set to increase to 1 in 12, with nearly 50 flights an hour flying over us at 3,000-4,000ft.

Here are suggested responses to the online Heathrow Consultation, which is very complicated with lots of supporting documentation. Hopefully, this will make it easier for Streatham's views to be heard.

New data on train delays shows true nightmare of travelling from Streatham stations

The high level of train cancellations and delays at all three Streatham stations is revealed in its full horror in latest statistics supplied in response to a Freedom of Information request we have made on behalf of Streatham Action Transport.
