Public consultation on proposed changes to flight paths into Birmingham Airport


Birmingham Airport are proposing to change two of the flight paths into the airport and have informed me that some parts of the Harborne, Selly Oak and Weoley areas could be affected.

The Flight path is called MOSUN and you can see the areas affected via this link to a map provided by the airport

More information on the new flightpath and the consultation documents published by the Airport can be found at

Public consultation on the proposed flight path changes lasts until Monday 6th November and the link above tells you how you can submit your views. The airport are also holding a public meeting on Monday 16th October from 6-8pm, at the School Hall, Harborne Primary School, Station Road, Harborne, B17 9LU to brief residents in this part of South West Birmingham on what they are proposing and to listen to concerns.

Weoley Labour Councillor, Julie Johnson, and I will also be meeting with the airport in the next few weeks to discuss the proposed changes.
