I AM concerned about the intended flight path changes as highlighted in The Hunts Post (February 27). Living in Cambourne I would be severely affected.

The reason to move to Cambourne was to be in a rural area with country parks and the ability to hear the wildlife. It was not my intention to have a major noise background from stacking planes.

Cambourne and the surrounding villages would be hard hit. Everyone currently comments on the wonderful tranquillity of the area and the wildlife.

To move flight paths over rural areas to provide major noise pollution to the countryside is not the answer. The current flight paths are used to the noise, and you could argue the fact that towns and cities already used to a background of traffic noise would not notice the increase in noise level so much.

People have chosen to move to the countryside for the peace and quiet. That's the benefit of the countryside. People choose to live in towns and cities for the amenities and live with the extra noise in the way of traffic etc. That is the residents' choice - although, if the developers get their way, Cambridgeshire will soon be a sea of houses with no amenities, called linked villages.
