The campaign group HACAN East has launched a petition against expansion plans put forward by London City Airport.

The new petition follows a public meeting during which the airport outlined proposals to change the current cap on flights, an increase in the number of early morning and late evening flights and an end to the 24-hour closure of the airport at the weekend.

The community event was arranged by Cann Hall Area Residents and involved representatives from London City, HACAN East, John Cryer MP and residents from boroughs affected by the airport.

HACAN East has also announced plans to deliver postcards to local communities advising how to complain about the proposals.

A Draft Master Plan was published by London City Airport in June 2019 and the 12-week public consultation runs until 20 September 2019. Full details can be found on the London City Airport website.

The petition created by campaign group HACAN East can be found on the website.
