For many people, aircraft noise is a real problem. Research shows that aircraft noise is more ‘annoying’ than road or rail noise and that we are becoming increasingly sensitive to it.

CPRE London has today written to the Mayor of London over concerns that he is allowing inappropriate development on London's Metropolitan Open Land (MOL) in Southwark.

The London Mayor has written to campaigners at CPRE London, confirming the importance of the Green Belt role in responding to the Climate Emergency. 

The Green Belt's most important job is to contain urban sprawl and a recent letter to CPRE London from the London Mayor confirms why this is so vital. But the Mayor goes onto explain that "the strong protection of the Green Belt and Metropolitan Open Land is also important due to the multiple environmental functions this land performs particularly within the context of a climate emergency. They provide many benefits including ensuring transport emissions to not increase from sprawl, supporting London’s resilience to a changing climate (such as preventing flooding) as well as supporting food growing, providing important habitats for wildlife and allowing space for recreation and relaxation for Londoners.”

CPRE London's appeal for Croydon residents to resist loss of Green Belt to housing in the borough received a fantastic response. 

Many people have written and the council extended the deadline by a week to 20 January 2020.
