Council should deal with safety
I HOPE residents enjoyed the RAF Open Day. I did – three days without the sudden roar of low flying commercial jets over north Hillingdon, sometimes five times an hour.
There could be 12,000 such flights a year! Oh and it seems that residents might have to pay £20 million pounds for this to continue.
A court ruling has shown there are substantial safety issues, concerns raised by commercial firms, not Hillingdon Council.
It is obvious to most that in this area low flying jets will cause major disturbance.
The Council say noise is a matter for the CAA and thus seems to wash its hands of the whole business. In fact the Council should prioritise the reinstatement of tolerable living conditions for thousands of residents.
It has many powers to deal with safety concerns, pollution and the overwhelming disturbance caused by this commercial company which should be forced to relocate.
