Wandsworth is conducting a survey for the airport expansion. I have just done it. It takes less than 5 minutes.

I agree this is a nightmare. Although it seems a little bit better today.
I'm interested to know whether inside soundproof windows may help reducing the noise. If anyone got some fitted, will you be able to make some recommendations?
Thank you!

Today has been really bad . I got woken up at 4:30am and there was at least 5 planes landing before 5am! Is there a petition we can sign against the expansion of heathrow?

I'm no expert on this, but while the trial has made things worse, I don't think it was great before either. It gets complicated because there were various phases in the trial with various set-ups. Wind direction is only a mitigating factor i.e. if it blows from the West, then there are no landings
over BTC.
Not sure if this makes it clearer!?

I have only been living in the area for a year but i thought the noise was due to the trial. Are you saying that there has been no increased noise due to the trial and that everytime it's quieter, it's only because of the direction of the
wind?
Thanks a lot for shading some light to a newbie

Unfortunately the planes didn't stop: the wind just changed direction...
70% of the time or so, the wind blows from the West and planes have to land from the East i.e. over our area. In the past few weeks there has been a lot more wind from the East than usually, thus reversing the pattern.
That explains why it feels like the planes are now "back".

Is it really worth complaining?
We had several weeks with hardly any planes but they are now back.I thought the trial ended in March. This is so annoying!

The 'mixed mode operations' trial that started last July finished on 28th February and a new 'night flight trial' has been in operation over the last few weeks. This trial is aimed at giving residents on the flightpath some respite from the 4.30-6.00am flights by alternating the routes that incoming planes take over South London. I have really noticed the benefit in the 'quiet' weeks where I live, and when the planes come back the following week I notice them even more! This new trial runs until the end of March.

The government are currently deciding whether to allow an increase in night flights from October 2014 (which is when the current agreement expires) and they are consulting now. If you want to air your opinion on night flights in particular you need to respond by 22nd April. You can e-mail night.noise@dft.gsi.gov.uk to have your say or e-mail the Transport Minister patrick.mcloughlin@dft.gsi.gov.uk

Other things you can do are
1) join Hacan who are very actively campaigning for a reduction in night flights between 11pm and 6am www.hacan.org.uk
2) Join the rally organised at Barn Elms Playing Field on 27th April 9.30-10.30am, where speakers will include Boris Johnson, Justine Greening and Zac Goldsmith
3) e-mail your local MP

but most importantly do have your say!

Yes, it seems to be constant today.

Is it me or has the noise increased today?

Yes it is definitely better - such a change and so nice to finally have quiet days! But does anybody know the reason?!
PS: I have just emailed the MP.

I'm not sure about the rotation.. But the trial was supposed to end in March, that's why I presumed it was the reason..

Re: Increased Air Traffic Noise across Wandsworth Common are

Yes it's much better but is it because of the end of the trial or is it just the usual 2 weeks rotation?
