On 18th September 2017 some results from the London heliport noise study were presented  by Luis Gomez-Agustina to the consultative group at Wandsworth Town.

The presentation was received with avid interest and was followed by many questions and lively discussions.
We hope to continue working with the three boroughs to help control and minimise helicopter noise disturbance. Spl please watch this space.
