Public Information Session on Saving Trees

An independent group of community volunteers have formed a committee dedicated to working with the City of Surrey to save trees on public land in the Ocean Park area. The group is hosting a public information session this Thursday, September 29th at 7:30 pm at the Ocean Park Hall (1577 128th Street, Surrey). Details on the flyer.

Air Traffic Noise

The following letter was received by the OPCA from the Citizens for AircrAft Noise Solutions (SCAANS) members

While it has been some time since we last sent out an update, SCAANS members have continued to advocate the aircraft noise/overflight issues that still affect our community. We have made our concerns known through membership in the SATF (Surrey Airspace Task Force) and the efforts of our citizen representative on the ANMC (Aeronautical Noise Management Committee).

Following is the link to a YVR survey. Public input will be considered as YVR develops its draft 2037 Masterplan. The last day for submission is October 31, 2016http://www.yvr2037.ca/survey

While planning for the future, the survey gives the opportunity to comment on issues of importance to us now. Question #12 asks us to rank the importance of various issues… namely to ‘minimize noise impacts to neighbouring communities’… which is definitely a priority in our community. The comment section also gives the chance to emphasize that ‘neighbouring communities’ should include impacted communities beyond the current 10nm limit. This is a point that has been in contention from the start and that SCAANS continues to advocate for.

NAVCanada ‘studies’ show that a large percentage of complaints regarding airspace changes drop over time. They count on this to validate their assertion that the noise/overflights are no longer an issue. However, we know that complaints drop as residents become frustrated with the lack of response to their concerns.

So, we ask you to please support our efforts and once more send a clear message that aircraft noise and overflights are still impacting our community. Many individuals sending complaints has a greater impact than numerous complaints from one person.

While WebTrak complaints are forwarded to Transport Canada (TC), we have discovered that by the time they are, the WebTrak data is often no longer available. We suggest that when you file a complaint through WebTrak you also contact Transport Canada. Indicate that aircraft noise/overflights are impacting you, and give the date and time of the disturbance, or even a particular time frame that was noisy. Unfortunately noise itself does not result in much action but the identification of low flying planes and overflights does.

Complaints can be sent to:

YVR…either to WebTrak http://webtrak5.bksv.com/yvr5 or simply an email to noise@yvr.ca.

Transport Canada…there is no longer an email option so complaints now go to the Civil Aviation Centre 1-800-305-2059. Choose option 4 “report low flying aircraft”.

MP Dianne Watts…email dianne.watts@parl.gc.ca or 604-542-9495. As the former mayor of Surrey she is well aware of the impact the flight changes have had on our community. She also sits on the Standing Committee on Transport, Infrastructure, and Communities (TRAN).

SCAANS…please let us know when you submit a complaint so we can help ensure that they are being counted and addressed.

SCAANS is currently corresponding with a citizen’s group in Toronto who are working on the same issues. Our goal is to require NavCanada to report any proposed airspace changes to the Minister of Transportation prior to enacting them.

Thank you for your continued interest,

The SCAANS committee
