Helicopter noise

At the STRA AGM a question was asked about what can be done about helicopter noise in the area.


Anood, our local Councillor, contacted Caroline Pidgeon at the GLA, and received the following reply.  Anood will follow up in the New Year.


You will see from the links below that this is a problem that is receiving London-wide attention.
"Caroline will indeed ask some Mayoral Questions in the New Year, however in the meantime I thought this information from her website might be useful.

Caroline also asked a couple of written Mayoral Questions back in September.   I thought they might be useful.
I also enclose a written Parliamentary Question asked by Tom Brake:
