Woman wins High Court fight over model aircraft noise

A woman who is tired of the noise from model aircraft flying over a neighbouring Basingstoke farm today won a High Court ruling quashing the local council's decision to rubber stamp the activity as lawful.

Deputy Judge Ockleton upheld Alison Sellars' claim that Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council was wrong to grant a "lawful use certificate" clearing the Aldershot Model Club and its chairman Peter Carter to fly up to five model aircraft during daylight hours seven days a week at Blacklands Farm, Newnham Lane, old Basing, Basingstoke.
