Auckland: The Plane Truth, Inc. is dedicated to restoring peace and quiet to the many Auckland neighbourhoods affected by noise pollution from jet aircraft.
 
At the least, the noise is physically and emotionally taxing: at the worst, unbearable.
Unable to cope, some residents have been forced to move house or to take medication  for depression and anxiety, and so they can sleep.
 
The extent of the problem is evidenced by the huge number of complaints received by the Airport - up to December 2013, 1100 individuals had already complained of excessive noise. Residents from areas as far-flung as the Te Atatu peninsula and Dannemora are affected, as well as the more central suburbs of Mt Roskill, Mt Eden, Epsom, Mangere Bridge, St Johns, Remuera, Oranga, One Tree Hill, Mangere East, Ellerslie, Royal Oak, Titirangi, Glendene, Blockhouse Bay... the list goes on. Will yours be next?
 
We are ratepayers yet we have had no voice in this. Auckland City Council and the Airport are jointly responsible for aircraft noise in our city but neither will take any action.The Airport is paying lip service to us; the Council simply doesn't want to know.
 
ATPT has made a submission on the Unitary Plan, as have many individual members of the group, and we pursue all avenues that may lead towards the restoration of peace to our suburbs.
 
Fighting the well-oiled PR machine of Big Business doesn't come cheap, and we are actively seeking support. Membership costs $10.00 and we need donations.Please do be generous: givealittle.co.nz   'For the love of Auckland' is our donation site.Every little helps.
 
For membership (and another way of making donations), our account number is 06 0177 0313619 00. Email aucklandtheplanetruth@gmail.com with your details so you can be added to the mailing list. Alternatively, you can use the 'Donate' button on this website to access the account information.
 
Attached below is a flyer suitable for printing out. If you have access to a printer, it would be fantastic if you could make some copies and distribute them round your neighbourhood, and pin them on noticeboards at work, playgroups, community centres, libraries and the like.
