Local reaction to Airports Commission recommendation

“I have consistently opposed the expansion of Heathrow and nothing in the Commission’s Report has made me change my mind.  Expansion would significantly damage our quality of life in the Hounslow – noise, pollution, traffic gridlock would all increase.   It’s important to note that the Government is not bound by the Commission’s recommendations and we will be lobbying hard and making sure that no one is in any doubt of the major environmental impact expansion at Heathrow would create.” 


Turnham Green Ward Councillors, Samantha Davies, Adrian Lee and Peter Thompson, are launching a “no holes barred” campaign to oppose the construction of a 32 storey skyscraper at Chiswick Roundabout.
