How will this affect me? Can you do an analysis for my house/village/town?

The postcode and location searches on the website are designed to enable you to determine whether the proposal potentially affects your area of interest and provides summary details of the potential effect.

To determine the effect on a particular area, follow these steps:

  1. Enter your postcode in the postcode search or select on ‘View a map’ in the top right hand corner of the web page and choose an area on the map that appears.
  2. Click on the tab ‘Today’s flights’ to see the traffic patterns that occur today; you can select maps showing different traffic patterns by selecting the options shown above and below the map.
  3. Click on the tab ‘Consultation swathes’ to see the swathes within which we need to position a route.  Locate your area of interest – if it is within any of the shaded areas, this area is potentially affected.  You can select maps showing different traffic patterns to consider by selecting the options shown above and below the map.
  4. The colour of the shaded areas will tell you how high the aircraft over an area would may be, if the proposal was implemented.
  5. Click on ‘Additional notes’ button in the top corner of the maps;  this will tell you how many aircraft may be over this area if the proposal was implemented.
  6. Click on the ‘Noise’ tab to see what aircraft at that altitude would look and sound like.

Following these steps shows you where, how high, how many, and how loud aircraft may be in the future with respect to any given area.

Considering this, if you think that an area needs special consideration to minimise these flights in the future, you can then click on the blue ‘Leave your feedback’ button – one of the questions will ask you to list places for consideration.

Alternatively, if you think you are affected you may wish to learn more.  If so, open the relevant parts of the consultation document that are listed next to the blue ‘Leave your feedback’ button.  This will provide you with the necessary information to allow you to answer all the consultation questions.
