[Letter] No objection to proposed helibase

Helicopter of the the Western Counties Air Operations Unit.

With reference to the article in the June edition of the BSJ magazine concerning the proposed new helicopter base at Almondsbury (‘Councillors demand noise barrier if new helicopter base approved’), I live at Woodlands Park and have no objections whatsoever to the siting of the new base.

We have lived here for eight years and have never been troubled by aircraft noise. There is more noise from the traffic using Woodlands Lane.

I see that 90 percent of the site will remain grass, which is a much better proposition than the field in Trench Lane that is covered by solar panels, which I find offensive.

I would be interested to know how the people who object to this proposed development would feel if they ever needed these emergency services.
