High Court victory is Plane Justice

Chris Quinlan spoke to Tim Bowling about Plane Justice’s part in the successful High Court action against the Civil Aviation Authority’s (CAA) Route 4 Gatwick flight path.

In 2016 the CAA decided to bring in new Sat Nav technology (rather than the previous beacon system) and changed Route 4 to a new route for a consultation period. This meant planes now flying over villages such as Newdigate, Salfords, Leigh, Horley which lead to over 12,000 complaints from local residents.

Several groups formed to try overturn the flight path changes, one of which was Plane Justice, headed by Chris Quinlan.

Route 4 decision quashed

Despite petitions and lobbying campaigns the CAA eventually decided to make Route 4 permanent. Plane Justice took them to the High Court and following a judicial review the Route 4 decision was quashed. Gatwick Airport and the CAA will now look again at the route of the flight path.
