Heathrow local opponents ready to fight the airport’s expansion plans – again!
Writing in the Uxbridge Gazette, the Stop Heathrow Expansion group comment on the anticipated statement from Heathrow about its finances and outlook, and intentions on a 3rd runway. Stop Heathrow Expansion group says Heathrow has a lot of hurdles, if it wants to build a 3rd runway. “Stricter climate change and environmental laws have been in force since the last proposal was put forward; they will be a major stumbling block for another doomed attempt at R3”. They also say spending so much money on what would probably end up as a bit of a “white elephant” would not be great for the airport’s foreign shareholders, who want high dividends in the coming decade. And the local borough council, Hillingdon, remains totally opposed to the expansion plans, which would have overwhelmingly negative impacts on the area and its residents. Heathrow’s full financial results will be released on 23rd February.
