Plane Justice -v- CAA:
Route 4 court case passes its first big test
Government leaves the way wide open
for night flight expansion at Gatwick
Plane Justice submits proposals
for radical overhaul of regulatory system
Residents living North of Gatwick, from Newdigate, Capel, Leigh, Norwood Hill, Sidlow, Salfords, Outwood and Horley, have come together to form Plane Justice, a collective which seeks to support (whether through communication, discussion, or legal process) those who are, or would be, newly affected by aircraft noise.
Formed in response to changes made to Gatwick departure Route 4 in May 2016, the founders of Plane Justice have experienced on a personal level the stress, anxiety and sense of hopelessness and financial insecurity that changing flight paths causes to communities.
We are about bringing common sense, fact-based thinking and a caring and ethical dimension into decision making about the management of airspace, which in our experience to date has been disturbingly absent in a number of quarters.
And we want to bring that same sense of injustice we have felt to the attention of decision makers, in whatever way may be suited to help affected communities achieve resolution.
