The Collective against air pollution in the Toulouse conurbation (CCNAAT) calls for a demonstration on Friday, April 22, to demand from the prefecture a study on “nights without planes”.
Associative and elected officials are called to gather, Friday April 22, from 12:30 p.m. Place Saint-Etienne in Toulouse, to “demand from the prefect to take into account the request for a study of nights without planes during the “impact study which must be generated by the fall”, indicates the Collective against aerial nuisances of the Toulouse conurbation (CCNAAT).
“The population is strongly impacted”
Residents close to Toulouse Blagnac airport, who regularly complain about noise pollution, are indeed asking for night flights to be stopped.
Supporting evidence: “The population heavily impacted by nocturnal airborne noise has grown by 73% over the last decade – from 8,500 to 14,500 people –, despite the commitments made in 2010, recalls the Collective. Today, only strict and proactive measures can make it possible to achieve the State’s new commitment, in particular the return to less than 8,500 people subjected to annual average nighttime noise above 50 dB”.
Many associations are in the loop of this request to the prefecture of Haute-Garonne: Association for the defense of the environment and the quality of life in Ancely and Arènes Romaines, Association for the defense of the district of Lardenne, Association for the safeguard interests of Saint-Martin-du-Touch, Aussonne environment, Association of inhabitants of the slopes of Ramonville-Saint-Agne, etc., as well as many local elected officials, including, among others, Didier Belair, mayor of Pechbusque and community councilor du Sicoval, Hélène Cabanes, municipal and community councilor Toulouse/Toulouse Métropole, Christophe Lubac, mayor of Ramonville, etc.
