Microlight flying privacy fears upheld

An inspector has upheld an enforcement notice directed against the continued use of agricultural land near a hamlet in Somerset for microlight flying after concluding that the sound made by the machines failed to merge into background noise.

The inspector was also concerned that pilots would be able to see into the rear gardens of properties. This would reduce privacy and adversely affect living conditions, he opined. It would be difficult to formulate conditions preventing pilots from flying over houses, he decided.
