EAST Hampshire District Council is demanding more information about plans to alter the airspace around TAG Farnborough Airport.

Councillors expressed their deep concerns about the noise and environmental impact of proposals that would lead to more planes flying lower over parts of East Hampshire.

During a debate at full council, last month, councillors said they needed more information from TAG, the company that runs Farnborough, detailing noise levels and pollution.

EHDC leader Ferris Cowper and East Hampshire Tory MP Damian Hinds have asked to meet with the Civil Aviation Authority to discuss the plans.

Mr Cowper said: “The proposals represent an unacceptable intrusion into the right for a peaceful existence.”

The new air routes would funnel traffic to and from Farnborough Airport over parts of the district, with Liss, Liphook and Grayshott most at risk from increased noise levels.

EHDC’s cabinet will discuss the issue further when more information can be obtained.
