Consultation on Heathrow Airport Expansion at Holiday Inn
Come along this Wednesday and ask how expansion will affect you
Heathrow Airport Expansion consultation event takes place this Wednesday 7 August at Holiday Inn Brentford Lock, Commerce Rd, Brentford TW8 8GA, 2pm - 8pm. Come along and find out about the plans that will affect everyone in the local area
In a flyer to be shared locally, The Brentford-based No 3rd Runway group, BASH advise us
"If Heathrow Airport Expands
there will be more noise, pollution
and congestion with about 50%
"The new flight path, which has not been disclosed by Heathrow, would be over central and north Brentford, on the blue dotted line above, approximately following the route of the A4.
"This means much more aircraft noise for people in central and north Brentford, and
noise coming from both sides for everyone."
You can respond to the consultation in a number of different ways:
HACAN recommends ignoring the feedback form and emailing Heathrow directly. HACAN offer a crib sheet (pdf) to help you with your responses as well as raising questions you might wish to ask.
Ruth Cadbury MP has said that particularly in the light of the climate change emergency these plans are not a done deal and that we should ensure we give our opinions.
You can also sign a petition to abolish the expansion given the climate emergency. Write to your local councillors and MP sharing your views and find out more at no3rdrunwaycoalition.co.uk
Hounslow's official position as stated by Cllr Steve Curran, Leader of Hounslow council is "we want a better, not bigger Heathrow Airport.
“We will however, work with Heathrow on behalf of our residents and businesses, many of whom are employed directly at Heathrow or are part of the supply chain, to ensure the best possible outcome and to reduce any adverse effects of the decision. We have already achieved some local improvements, particularly for our schools, this work must continue.”
