#Manston #nightflights


Dear Sirs,

I do not want the night flights proposal to be approved.

I live in Ramsgate and I’m very keen for the town to prosper but think that night flights will be very detrimental to this for the following reasons.

The town’s history and future is as a tourist resort and night flights will be very detrimental to this. I think there are very tourists who would be happy to have their sleep spoiled or their restaurant meals disturbed during their visit because of the noise these night flights will make.

I am opposed to the proposal that Manston should be allowed to operate night flights between 11.00pm and 7.00pm.

I live directly under the flight path - by the time the planes are over my house I can virtually count the rivets on the undercarriages. The recent increase in night flying during the second half of 2011 has had a deleterious effect on our sleep. On one occasion my 14 year old son was awoken at 3.30am approx. and said "I thought a bomb had gone off!" Imagine how frightening this must be for smaller children.

We are against the proposal to allow night flights from Manston Airport as it will disturb our sleep. We occasionally hear aircraft at night as it is and are dreading a time when this may become a regular occurrence. I have a disabling illness and do not need any extra stress.

Dear Sirs,

I am writing to voice my opposition to night flights (between 11pm and 7am) to and from Manston. I live under the approach from the west in Herne Bay.

The first house I owned was on a busy street in Northfleet which was, like most roads, quiet at night. At about between 5-6 am traffic started moving so it was impossible to get good quality sleep after this disturbance started. It wasn't until I moved to a quieter location that I realised I was getting better and longer sleep and how much better I felt as a result.

#Manston #nightflights


I am against night flights at Manston excepting for emergencies. My main reasons are:

1 My health - I have suffered sleep deprivation in the past and have no wish to go through that again for whatever reason

2 Manston as far as I can tell has plenty of spare capacity during the day and this should be used before night flights

3 Cargo planes are heavier and noisier than passenger planes

4 I do not see how having night flights at Manston will create that many more jobs, and is it really worth doing so many people more harm for such a sort sighted reason as creating about twenty jobs

5 When we first came to the area, Manston was NOT an airport it was an Aerodrome, we had much delight watching the fighter jets etc go over us , but this was perhaps once a week if that and NEVER at night. My family moved here for peace, quiet and beg you not to allow night flights which will in my view ruin a lovely area of Kent.

Dear consultation committee,

I am writing to register my OPPOSITION to the proposal to introduce night flights from Manston Airport. My family and I live directly under the flight path and we are therefore directly affected by the proposal.

Also, I am an academic psychologist so I am well aware of the potentially negative effects of sleep deprivation, which will be an inevitable consequence of introducing night flights. People who are sleep deprived tend to have increased blood pressure, are more likely to suffer depression and anxiety, are more likely to develop headaches, suffer confusion and memory loss, hallucinations, and irritability.

I am strongly against Manston’s night flying proposal.

Flybe cannot make Manston work for them others have tried and failed.

The catchment area for Manston is just not large enough for this ever to work for passenger flights.

All that is left is old aircraft bringing in cargo. Please don't spoil what we have now, a great town on the up.

Dear Sirs,

I would like to let you know that I am strongly opposed against any night flights in Manston airport between 11pm and 7am.

Already in its present form the airport is a considerable source of unnecessary noise and environmental pollution.

Dear Sirs,

I would like to let you know that I strongly object against any night flights in Manston airport between 11pm and 7am.

The airport already causes a lot of noise and pollution. Should the proposed plans go ahead, my life – and those of thousands of other people – will be even more affected by noise, stress and illnesses.

No to Night Flights

Ramsgate has many listed building that cannot have double glazing – windows rattle when the Cargo Monsters fly over.

Finally a chance to be consulted on night flights!

I am strongly opposed to night flights from Manston between the hours of 11pm and 7am.

Living directly under the flight path, I am unable to continue a conversation when I am outside when a plane flies over, and in the evening when the TV is on, I cannot watch a programme without turning the volume right up when a plane goes overhead.

I am categorically opposed to seeing my sleep pattern disrupted for the illusory creation of a few jobs.

My objections to night flights is for the noise we get from these low flying aircraft coming in to land it’s bad enough during the day.

Dear Sirs,

I must protest about the proposed night flights we live in Cliffsend just south of the runway during the day when planes take off towards the east we cannot hear our television till they have passed over, when they take off to the west we have to put up with the smell of aviation fuel, when they arrive or take off in the night the noise wakes us both up, surely it cannot be right that we will suffer all night.
