Ten Brussels communes against Belgian state in the legal action on overflightsTuesday, 04 September 2018 12:19
The action by the Brussels region was commenced in June this year, a year after an initial state judgment to implement adjustments in overflights above the Brussels Canal Route, that of the Brussels Ring Road and the axis of Runway 01 in the south-east of Brussels.
Since June, ten Brussels communes have joined in this new action by the region.
An internal memo to the Brussels government shows the rate of infringement to be reaching 55% to 64% within the Brussels Canal area. Night flights going over the sound level metre of Sint-Pieters-Woluwe are recording more than 90% of offences being committed.
The Brussels memo laments, “The state has not implemented any practical measure to stop these infringements in the short term, or even to reduce them.”
The Federal Minister for Mobility, François Bellot, repeats that an impact assessment study of the airport’s activities has been commissioned.
