£9 million divided by 300 = £30,000 each. £1 million divide by 583 = hardly a "fair outcome" The first round of compensation was done very quietly in order to avoid paying out to everyone who was entitled to it. At no time were we contacted by the airport directly regarding a claim. But housholders did receive many letters from lawyers offering to claim on their behalf. Similar situation really to the deluge of PPI claim offers so many people thought it was some sort of scam and didn't claim. How is that fair? The compensation is for the devaluation of property, not for noise and distrurbance caused by the additional air traffic so why are the schools entitled to a payout? If the airport were really "good neighbours" they would pay to have the classrooms soundproofed.
