Airspace Trial at Edinburgh Airport
If you've been wondering why there's been an increase in aircraft noise in the area recently it's due to a new westerly take off route being trialled at Edinburgh Airport. You can read more about this trial at a web site created by the airport at the following location http://sid.edinburghairport.com which you can visit by clicking here.
Should you have specific noise complaints or believe that an aircraft isn’t following the correct procedure then Edinburgh airport operates a dedicated noise enquiry line 24/7 which can be called on 0800 731 3397. All callers will be asked to leave their name and contact information, along with details of the date and time of any disturbance. All calls are recorded and complaints investigated. Callers will be provided with either an answer to their enquiry or will be told how long they can expect to wait for a full response. It is advised that if you experience more than one event of concern you should call this number each time to report.
If you do make a complaint and you do not get a timely response or you feel the response does not resolve your specific complaint then you can contact one of your local councillors, elected MP or MSP and ask them to look into the matter further on your behalf.
There is also an online petition at www.change.org to stop the trial which can be accessed by clicking here.
