I have received the following message by email, and have also read about this topic at a “Long Branch Development” Facebook Page.
Message regarding increased aircraft traffic over Alderwood and Long Branch reads as follows:
You probably have noticed that the airplane traffic and noise has increased lately and there are plans by the GTAA to have planes fly over our houses for 2 weekends a month and 2 nights a week all night permanently.
Anyways there is a number/email you can contact to register your complaints. This is basically how the air traffic has been rerouted to our neighbourhood because other neighbourhoods complained loudly.
There is also a big meeting scheduled for April 19th to address the issue, I am not sure of the details.
There is also a Facebook page “Alderwood Airplane Noise”:
