A Churchill Gardens resident raised this problem with us;
“In the early hours (3am) of this morning there was a low flying helicopter going up and down the river for about 15 minutes. You can imagine the amplification of the noise. The problem with this noise is getting much worse. There are no restrictions on this and I am concerned that the more developed that area becomes the more unrestricted helicopter usage there will be. “
You can get information or report complaints about helicopter movements or pilot activities by calling 020 7228 0181 (8am to 7pm). This service deals only with helicopters using the Battersea heliport. The contact for noise from helicopters and other aircraft should be made to the Civil Aviation Authority. There is an on line complaint service using their website www.caa.co.uk.
