Heathrow Airport Ltd – Statutory Consultation

Note – this consultation closed in September 2019, but we have kept our advice available online for background and reference.

If you oppose Heathrow’s expansion, then you really must fill in their consultation and tell them so. The consultation itself is vast and complicated, but we have picked out the issues that are key for our area – and added some navigation to make it easier for you to comment.

If you’re very short of time, feel free to cut and paste the following objection and send to feedback@heathrowconsultation.com

Heathrow’s plans for new flight paths and additional flights from 2022 would bring unacceptable levels of noise to Ealing and elsewhere. Any increase in flight numbers also means more carbon emissions and lower air quality. It would reduce the quality of life in my community and is inconsistent with the UK’s commitment to cut carbon emissions and improve air quality in the capital.

I strongly object to ANY change in flightpaths; to ANY loss of respite; to ANY increase in numbers of flights; and to ALL plans for expansion – and I make this objection as a formal contribution to the consultation process.

We have tried to keep our advice as short as possible – but there’s still a lot to say. If you’re short of time, each section contains a set of bullet points as a summary.

You should give your own opinions, and in your own words. Nevertheless, we have highlighted some of the key concerns on each issue for you to consider. Please make sure that you complete the Comments and feedback section as this is a good place to state your opposition to Heathrow’s plans.

When you know what you want to say, click on our links to take you to the consultation itself, and complete it as you wish. You needn’t complete them all if don’t wish.

Do use unambiguous language to prevent Heathrow interpreting your comments in its own favour – so, “I object most strongly…” or “it is most important that…”

We have provided advice on the following consultation topics:

Public Transport

Runway Alternation

Night Flights

Early Growth

Environmental Introduction

Air Quality
