Night Flights? No thanks!


Public Consultation


In a nutshell:

  • Email the TDC Night Flights Consultation.
  • The first line of your email should make it clear that you are against night flights between 11pm and 7am.
  • Use the rest of your email to explain why, if you want to.
  • You MUST give your name, full address and post code.

A bit more background:

Thanet District Council has just started a public consultation. The aim is to find out what the public (you) think about Manston’s recent night flying proposal.

This is your chance to make a difference - they cannot ignore a majority result.

The consultation is not question-based, it simply asks for your opinion of the proposals. The analysis of the results will be weighted by post code - the opinions of people who live under the flight path or near the airport will carry more weight.

When TDC are dealing with the replies, they will (presumably) sort them into piles of “For”, “Against” and “Other”.

Make sure that it is immediately obvious to anyone reading your email which pile it should go in - use the first line of your email (or the subject line) to say you are against Manston’s night flying proposal.

You must include your name, address and post code - if you don’t it won’t count.

Do feel free to send a copy of your submission to - it’s useful for us to see how the consultation’s going, and we’ll put some of the best ones on the website.

Click here to see some of the reasons we're against night flights, and you can add your own thoughts. Please don’t just cut & paste the whole lot into your email - use any that are important to you, and add your own.

Do feel free to pass this on to anyone you know who is against night flights, especially if they live under the flight path.

The next few weeks of consultation, and the run-up to the eventual vote in Council in May, will be eventful - particularly given our legal challenge to the proposals - so do take this opportunity to make sure you keep in touch…

You can get up to date news about the consultation, our legal challenge and news from TDC through our weekly newsletter, and you can get more up to date news through Facebook and Twitter:
