In the early hours of the morning of 10th April, Eastleigh councillors voted 22 for, 13 against and 1 abstain regarding the Southampton Airport unway extension. This is a disappointment to our campaign but we are taking advice as to our options for future action. We have heard airport-supporting claims that we cannot address environmentalContinue reading “Eastleigh full council votes to support runway extension”

The contour shown in the map above covers the areas where the 16-hour average noise is at least 51dB.Continue reading “Are you sure you are not under the flight path?”
