Stobart has lost a test case and will have to pay compensation for aircraft noise.
The Lands Chamber of the Upper Tribunal has ordered London Southend Airport to pay compensation for the diminished value of homes hit by its noise.

Thus a gaggle of lawyers made a packet out of it.

...Possibly but as a result of Stobart being bad neighbours.

Bit of a non-story if you actually look beyond the headlines? Ten properties covered by the action of which nine have been awarded compensation averaging 10k for loss in value?

They were test cases so this will open the gates for more payments. The class action was on behalf of 190 residential homes but no doubt if anyone in a given road or area gets a payment then that will also allow their neighbours to also claim.

The test case certainly adding to Stobart woes & proving the disregard of residential areas & residents in an unprofessional manner as previously highlighted.

The vulture fund buying into Stobart may also prove to be very interesting & quite predicable.

Claims surely coming from those properties backing on to the airport where residents can almost serve the drinks trolley!

I had a look at the locations of some of the properties. There was a spread of locations including addresses in Rochford, Westcliff on Sea, Southend on Sea and Leigh on Sea. I am thinking maybe big money?

Surely, payments would only be settled on the sale of the affected property. Who can say what the value of a house may be in say 20 years time if not sold until then. This may turn out to be a long drawn out saga where only the lawyers profit.

The airport has been ordered to remove the thousands of pallets stored in one of its car parks as this is a breach of planning permission.

Still, not too much of a blow as they will need those parking spaces back soon.

The locals commenting on that article didn`t seem to think so.

Doesn't look like Wideroe's route to Kristiansand is launching anytime soon. The only flights available at the moment are now via Bergen to Heathrow.
