When planning permission was granted originally, a condition listed as “Condition 5” stated that on completion of the new runway, the average number of night time aircraft movements shall not exceed 65 per night (between 2300 and 0700).

The DAA confirmed to me that currently, the amount of movements within the same “night time” period are 100.
