Heathrow expansion opponents get their say

The fight against further expansion at Heathrow Airport is gathering momentum as members of the public get the chance to make their views known.

Heathrow bosses are inviting people to the Macdonald Windsor Hotel in High Street on Saturday, March 1, from 9.30am to 4.30pm.

They will be able to view plans for a third runway and tell airport representatives what they think.

Meanwhile the Royal Borough is standing firm against any expansion of Heathrow as well as calling for an outright ban on night flights.

Deputy Mayor of Windsor and Maidenhead, Cllr John Lenton (Con, Horton and Wraysbury), is chairman of the Royal Borough's aviation forum.

He said: "We have pressed Heathrow to hold more exhibitions in the borough but unfortunately we have been told that the Airports Commission has not allowed a sufficient period for further consultation."

He called on to people to reply to the consultation document being sent to homes across the area.

The document – produced by Heathrow Airport – can be found at www.heathrow.com/localcommunity

Residents can also request a copy by emailing Cheryl_monk@heathrow.com or calling 0800 344844.

The consultation ends on Sunday, March 16.
