Question

The noise from helicopters flying and landing near to Barnes Bridge is intolerable for local residents. Will the Mayor write to the Department for Transport encouraging it to undertake a full review of the impact of helicopter noise in London and implement policies to mitigate this form of noise pollution, as recommended by the Environment Committee's report in 2006?

The designation of routes for helicopter flight paths through London's airspace is a matter for the Department for Transport and the Civil Aviation Authority. I would be happy to write to the Secretary of State for Transport requesting that he commission a full review of the impact of helicopter noise in London.
