SWAN View resident Peter Whitehurst says homeowners will be exposed to unacceptable levels of aircraft noise if Perth Airport proceeds with flight corridors for its new runway.
Mr Whitehurst said aircraft departures heading north should be based on Perth Airport’s 2009 Masterplan.
“The plan released for comment indicates the majority of all northern air traffic takeoffs will be directed over Bellevue, Koongamia, Greenmount and Swan View and a small number of turbo prop aircraft over Bushmead, Helena Valley, Boya and Darlington,” he said.
“This is contradictory to Perth Airport’s Masterplan 2009 where the flight tracks for the new runway are clearly indicated as aircraft taking off and climbing over Hazelmere and Midland, and then turning east over the rural areas of Middle Swan and Red Hill.”
