People Suffering from Noise Pollution from Air Traffic Sue the Dutch Government

About 180 people who live in Schinveld, close to the AWACS airport in Gelsenkircen over the German border, are taking the Dutch government to court over the amount of noise pollution generated by the airport. Each plaintiff is suing for 1,500 euros per year. As the noise concerns a significant number of years, the total amount of the claim is 8 million euros. The claim is based on earlier payments to people living close to Schipol Amsterdam airport, and Maastricht-Aachen airport.
