Answered By: 
The Mayor

I recognise the important impact that exposure to noise has on the quality of life of many Londoners. My officers have previously met with the CAA where this matter was raised. There are technical issues with mapping the cumulative noise impact of all London flights, but I will ask my officers to look at this issue again.

I think it would be helpful if you also raised this with the CAA.
