Farnborough Airport Expansion – Public Consultation

Respond by 18th October 2023

Your chance to be heard!

Farnborough Airport owners are seeking to increase the annual number of flights from 50,000 to 70,000 a year – including a jump in weekend traffic from 8,900 to 18,900. As Bentley is on the main take-off flight path and aircraft are still often below 4000ft when passing over the village this move will have a huge impact on the peace and tranquillity we currently enjoy.

It is estimated that only some 2000 travellers fly in private jets from the airfield and we on the Parish Council assume that most of you reading this are not amongst them. So whilst we might wish this privileged elite well, we’re sure you’ll join us in agreeing that this is an unwanted development in the skies over Bentley.
