Cold conditions have caused delays and cancellations to flights at Gatwick Airport tonight. We apologise to passengers for the difficulty this is causing and will continue working closely with our airlines to get back on track. Please check the latest flight information with your airline and do not travel to the airport if your flight has been cancelled.
Noise Insulation Scheme
Our noise insulation scheme is the most innovative in Europe.
Homes across Surrey, Sussex and Kent can apply for up to £3,000 towards double glazing for their windows and doors as well as loft insulation.
We want to go further than simply being 'noise compliant'. Following consultation with the local community, we have extended our current noise insulation scheme.
Our bigger and more generous scheme will benefit a further 985 homes in our community.
We have extended the boundary of the scheme by 15km to both the east and west, taking into account both the increased sensitivity people have towards noise levels as well as the frequency of how many times they might be overflown.
The boundary line not only covers a bigger area, it is drawn flexibly to ensure entire roads and villages are included so everyone in one area can apply to the noise scheme.
We have written to those who are eligible with more details of the scheme and how to apply.
