Goodwood Aerodrome and Circuit
Goodwood strive at all times to minimise the effect of noise coming from both the Motor Circuit and the Airfield. However, if you feel that at anytime the noise from the circuit is in excess of the permitted limits or if you feel an aircraft has not followed the specified route and has taken off over your house then please contact Goodwood directly on 01243 755162. You will be asked to press button 1 and then record your complaint straight away. Please give full details including exact times, especially if complaining about low flying aircraft. You should receive a response within 48 hours. If you do not please drop an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org setting out the details.
Please remember that landing aircraft are allowed to approach runway 06 on a North Easterly flight path straight over Summersdale. It is aircraft taking off in the opposite direction ( ie. Runway 24) that are supposed to turn right after take-off and pass through the Lavant Gap, thus avoiding Summersdale.
Their noise management policy for aircraft is set out on the Goodwood website
And maps showing the 'noise abatement' flight paths for both fixed wing aircraft and helicopters are
Which runways are in use will depend on wind direction and Goodwood have provided a link to their weather station,

The Neighbourhood Management Panel (NMP)
held regular meetings, at which we were represented, to discuss problems and priorities with local police.
However, the group was deemed not to be viable and was wound up in September 2017.
Neighbourhood enforcement priorities include vandalism and anti-social behaviour, notably in Brandy Hole Copse, cycling on pavements and dog owners who allow their dogs to foul but fail to clean up after them.
There has been a spate of bike thefts so keep your bike locked and note its frame number.
