Have your say on Heathrow

Residents who are worried about worsening noise from planes taking off and landing at Heathrow are urged to stand up and make their voices heard.

A recent decision by airport bosses to abandon flight path trials following complaints about high noise levels has been welcomed by Hammersmith & Fulham Council, which is against proposals to add a third runway.

Now councillors are asking residents to share their opinions on the future of Heathrow at a public meeting on Tuesday, 4 November.

All are welcome to play a part in the Community Safety, Environment and Residents Services Policy and Accountability Committee, which will meet at 7pm in the Courtyard Room on the ground floor of Hammersmith Town Hall.

Committee chair Cllr Larry Culhane said: "We know Heathrow generates strong feelings in our borough and we are encouraging residents to come and share their views. The unwelcome impacts of the flight path trials shows just how badly H&F residents would be affected by the expansion.

"We are determined that residents can play an important role in deciding how we take forward our campaign."

Heathrow Airport announced at the start of October that it will end its current airspace trials on November 12, instead of its original scheduled end date of 26 January, 2015. A new round of trials which were due to start on 20 October have been postponed until autumn 2015.
