People living nearby Stansted Airport could suffer from an increase in noise pollution if plans to change flight paths go ahead.
Campaigners Stop Stansted Expansion claim the changes would mean those living up to 20 miles away would see an increase in flights overhead.
But those in charge of air traffic say it will ease congestion and lead to fewer overhead flights in other areas.
People living near Stansted Airport have just four weeks to get their views heard on planned changes to its flight paths.
National Air Traffic Services - which is known as NATS - is proposing to direct the majority of flights which currently head south from the airport to go east instead.
NATS insists there will not be any new routes - just new ways of using the existing ones.
The consultation ends on September 8.
