Lib Dems call for Harrow to be heard in new Heathrow consultation


Chris Grayling today announced that a public consultation into the planned third runway at Heathrow Airport has been reopened to include new evidence.

Harrow Liberal Democrats called again for Harrow residents to be actively consulted.

Last time round, Harrow was not included in consultations, despite it being closer than other areas that were consulted, such as Theresa May's constituency of Maidenhead, and despite the likelihood that the new flight paths would mean an increase in noise for people living here.


Liberal Democrat Leader Vince Cable commented:

“I urge all those concerns about the environmental and social impact of Heathrow expansion to made their voice heard through this consultation.

“The fact this consultation has had to be reopened shows the government’s case remains deeply flawed. It is difficult to see how a third runway can be delivered without breaching legal air pollution limits. We will continue to work with other parties in Parliament to stop Heathrow expansion in its tracks.”
