Last Heathrow consultation in Isleworth next week with public meeting to follow
Assumed flight path (dotted) and westerly approach (red)
- How much more noise will I experience in my home or garden?
- Where will the new approach paths be within 6 miles of the runway? (it's not impossible to work out that the approach path will be over the north side of Chiswick, then central Brentford, Osterley and north Heston)
- Will the respite periods for the approach to the current runways remain 8 hours or be reduced? If so, by how much?
- How many more cars vans & lorries will enter/leave the airport? How many will be carrying passengers, or staff, or freight? How many more for servicing flights?
- What increases in road and rail capacity are planned? And who will pay? the taxpayer, or airline passengers?
- What will be the additional safety risk of a plane catastrophe with a third runway? - and how would the ground-based consequences compare with the consequences for the much less heavily populated Gatwick area should the worst happen?
- How will noise and pollution issues be measured, addressed and mitigated?
- Will there be independent scrutiny of how the airport operates, in terms of noise, traffic insulation schemes and air pollution?
- What climate change emissions would there be and how would they affect the UK's carbon emissions targets?
- What will happen if Heathrow doesn't keep to any of its commitments?
