Thousands of newsletters are being sent to people in the Biggin Hill and Bromley area

The operators of Biggin Hill Airport are asking for the views of neighbouring residents as it looks to expand.

Thousands of newsletters are being sent to people in the Biggin Hill and Bromley area detailing its plans, which it says will create 2,300 jobs over the next 15 years and cut its noise footprint by 50 per cent.

Every response will go into a draw for a £5,000 holiday.

The plan involves more hangars and offices, a training college, a hotel and staying open later, until 11pm.

Will Curtis, managing director of the airport, said: “An integral part of our vision is to reduce the impact of the airport on residents living under the flight path.

“We are publishing a Noise Action Plan which will reduce the noise footprint of the airport by 50 per cent.”

A public-information display has been set up and runs until Saturday, October 18. Details can be also be found at www.bigginhillfuture.co.uk.
