|Council Wants Your Film Clips Of Airport Noise
Residents under flightpath asked to use phones to reveal noise
The London Borough of Hounslow is asking residents to send in clips of film footage from smart phones about what it is like to live under the flight paths of aeroplanes taking off and landing at Heathrow Airport.
To mark International Noise Awareness Day, the Council is raising awareness of the impact of aircraft noise on residents in the borough using social media and has launched a special YouTube channel – Noise Annoys Hounslow.
Night noise from aircraft annoys Hounslow people more than any other aviation-related issue.
Research shows that sleep deprivation and disrupted sleep patterns can increase the chance of heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes.
All residents need to do is film brief clips that show aircraft take off or land where they live – at home, at work, at school, indoors or outdoors, at any time of the day or night, upload the footage to YouTube and let the Council know the link to the video. They will share your videos on their new channel: www.youtube.com/user/noiseannoyshounslow
You can email the link to: firstname.lastname@example.org or let them know via Facebook or Twitter.
The footage will be available to view publically.
