Council holds public meeting on Heathrow plans

On Thursday 6 February, Wandsworth council is holding a public record for those interested in proposals to expand Heathrow airport and increase night flights.

They say:

Council leader Ravi Govindia will address [the] public meeting in Putney next week [...] John Stewart of aviation campaign group HACAN will also be there as well as local MP Justine Greening.

The meeting will be held at St Mary’s Church, Putney High Street on Thursday 6 February at 7pm for a 7.30pm start.

The Airports Commission headed up by Sir Howard Davies has issued its first report which recommends more night flights from 2015 and shortlists Heathrow as a potential location for new runways.

Cllr Govindia said: “We are deeply concerned at the commission’s first set of recommendations and its methodology for selecting a new runway site in the south of England.

“We know that local residents share our fears and are deeply worried about the impacts of bigger, less regulated Heathrow will have on their health and their quality of life. This event will be an opportunity to share your views and to find out what you can do to influence the Government’s policy on airport expansion.”
