JARDINE CALLS FOR URGENT MEETING OVER AIRPORT

MP for Edinburgh West Christine Jardine has asked the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) for an urgent meeting to discuss Edinburgh Airport’s latest proposals on flightpath changes, particularly effecting communities in South Queensferry and Cramond. 

 

The proposals, if approved, could see an increase in flights over South Queensferry and little change to current situation in Cramond where residents have complained about constant noise from arriving jets. 

 

Ms Jardine, who has launched an Early Day Motion at Westminster, met with officials from Edinburgh Airport last week with Liberal Democrat colleagues, to discuss the issue, said: 

 

“This flight path proposals have caused enormous concern in communities across Edinburgh West.

 

 “The airport is hugely important to Edinburgh for both jobs and improved infrastructure, however it is clear that there has been breakdown in communication leaving local communities feeling both ill-informed and disappointed about the current proposals.

 

“Edinburgh airport has enjoyed a good relationship with surrounding communities in the past but these latest proposals are putting this relationship at risk. 

 

“I am seeking an urgent meeting with the CAA to discuss how any further damage can be avoided.  This is what communities in Edinburgh West deserve.”
