|HACAN Supports Call for Night Flight Ban|
Residents' representative group backs London Assembly's verdict
HACAN, representing residents under the Heathrow flight paths, has backed the call from the London Assembly today to ban night flights at Heathrow.
In its response to the Government's consultation on the future of night flights at Heathrow, Stansted and Gatwick, the Assembly's Health and Environment Committee has called for a night flight ban at Heathrow.
It also backs the suggestion that, if night flights continue, more of them should land over Berkshire to ease the burden of noise on the hundreds of thousands of people overflown in London. And it has called for further research on the impact of night noise on residents' health.
