Wanstead councillor speaks at inquiry into airport expansion plans


Wanstead Village councillor Jo Blackman spoke at the public inquiry into London City Airport’s expansion plans earlier this month.

“Redbridge Council has consistently opposed City Airport’s plans for more flights in the early morning and Saturday afternoons. Wanstead is under the current flight path and particularly impacted by these plans that would lead to more noise and air pollution, as well as exacerbating the climate crisis,” said Councillor Blackman.

The inquiry will continue at Stratford Town Hall in the New Year.
