Redbridge Council have announced there will be a public meeting in Wanstead to discuss expansion plans by London City Airport.
The event follows a robust discussion organised by Cann Hall Area Residents in July and the launch of a campaign against the proposals by HACAN East.
A Draft Master Plan published by the Airport in June 2019 outlined plans including a change to the current cap on flights, an increase in the number of early morning and late evening flights and an end to the current 24-hour closure of the airport at the weekend. This follows the controversial concentration of arrival and departure routes in 2016 which resulted in a five-fold increase in complaints from local residents.
The public meeting will take place at Wanstead Library on Thursday 5 September 2019 at 18.00. Tim Halley, Director of Infrastructure & Planning at London City, will speak and answer questions from residents.
**Update: 4 September 2019**
This meeting has been postponed.
