Gloucester Airport Expansion - CASE Update #6

24th November 2008

1. Gloucester City Council Overview and Scrutiny Management Committee
meet at 18:00 on Tuesday 2nd December 2008 to decide whether to
recommend supporting the Airport's business plan. The meeting is open
the public and there will be the opportunity for the public to ask
questions. The Airport has been appealing for it's supporter to attend
the meeting and demonstrate support for their plans. We feel it is
important to balance this with the views of local people who do not want
their council taxes spent on a risky scheme that will expand the
Airport. If you can attend this meeting, please do so.

This meeting will be held at the Council offices :

Gloucester City Council
North Warehouse
The Docks


2. The planning applications submitted by the airport have still not
been considered by the Tewkesbury Borough Council planning committee. As
soon as the committee date and the planning officers recommendations are
published we will send an update with the details of the committee
members so that you can contact them directly and make your views known.

Clearly the planners see the expansion as an issue, as they have spent
almost two years (since Dec 2006) analysing the applications to judge
if, and to what extent, there will be 'intensification'.


3. Remember that noise complaints can now be submitted online using the
Airport's website. The home page is at :


and the noise complaint form is at :


If complaints are not made the airport will claim that their operations
do not cause a noise nuisance. It only takes a moment to log a
complaint, whether it is an out of hours incident, something
particularly low or loud, or repeated circuits.
