Concerned About Aircraft Noise Over Lightwater And Nearby Villages?

Rosalie James, a Lightwater-resident, is for reducing aircraft noise over Lightwater, which also affects the adjacent villages of Bagshot, West End, and Windlesham. She wrote:

“Since the end of the recent Heathrow trials, I have made numerous complaints via the Heathrow website regarding noise from aircraft. It is my belief that noise has not reduced to pre-trials levels, particularly late night and early mornings, something which Heathrow disputes.

Following correspondence directly with Heathrow and Michael Gove, John Holland-Kaye, CEO of Heathrow has offered a meeting to discuss the situation with Cheryl Monk, Head of Community Relations and Policy.

Cheryl Monk has extended the invitation to any other residents wishing to attend, hence the reason for this post.

As 12 people from Lightwater and Windlesham have so far confirmed they would like to attend.  I shall be requesting that the meeting take place locally rather than at Heathrow.  It is likely to be towards the end of September, time and date to be confirmed and probably require a short meeting before then to organise objectives to maximise the opportunity of the meeting.

If you, or any other residents you know who feel impacted by noise wish to attend, please email at to register your interest.”
