This information about the effect of the Government's plans to expand Heathrow is circulated by the Peckham Residents' Network.
The information is extracted from campaign website http://www.stopheathrowexpansion.com/ It says that there will be severe effects right across a noise corridor in south east London including Peckham, Camberwell and Dulwich, and beyond, although the Government is consulting only people who live near Heathrow. The attached map shows part of the noise effect corridor stretching back into Wandsworth, and goes on beyond Wandsworth to Greenwich. If you want to make your views known, see the campaign website for the action details.
From the campaign website:
""The Government launched its consultation into expansion at Heathrow on 23rd November. It will last until 27th February. The Government expects to make a decision later this year. If the plans go ahead, the number of planes could rise from 473,000 a year to over 702,000. This will require the demolition of hundreds, even thousands, of homes. It will also bring more noise disturbance and increase climate change emissions.""

on Peckham and also on Blackheath, Camberwell, Docklands, Dulwich, Greenwich, Lewisham:
Aircraft landing all day long when west wind is blowing – a big increase in aircraft overhead as there will be more flights on the existing runways and also flights heading for the new runway.
on Brixton, Clapham:
Aircraft landing all day long when west wind is blowing – maybe more than one every 90 seconds for much longer periods throughout the day as there will be flights heading for all three runways.
