Over 200 residents claim compensation from TAG Farnborough Airport

Over 200 residents claim compensation from TAG Farnborough Airport

Published by the Eagle Radio News Team at 6:00am 9th November 2015. (Updated at 6:41am 9th November 2015)

Hundreds of residents could be entitled to millions in compensation from TAG Farnborough Airport.

In 2010 the airport expanded their West One Apron from from 19,800m2 to 32,600m2, providing facilities for a greater number of aircraft.

Residents in the area say the value of their house has been decreased due to noise and other physical factors.

The Lands Tribunal recently ruled that residents whose property values had decreased due to the expansion of Farnborough airport could pursue a compensation claim against the airports operators.

Hugh James is the law firm representing the claimants, which is currently 236 people (from 09/11/15).

Neil Stockdale is their head of environmental law:

"TAG Farnborough Airport has developed a huge operation widely regarded as Europe's leading business aviation centre and my clients feel the impact on them hasn't been taken into account and that's what they're pursuing these claims."

He tells Eagle Radio the compensation fee could even run into millions in total:

"It doesn't take much for each claim to be worth X pounds, you multiply that by the number of properties affected and you would expect many hundreds of thousands if not millions of pounds in compensation."

Residents have until 28 May 2017 to claim, but Neil tells Eagle Radio:

"People can’t wait until the last minute as cases will need to be prepared for lodging with the Tribunal and this will take time."
