Is the expansion of Heathrow Airport justified? Health and noise campaigners warn the impact on the surrounding area could pose long-term risks for the airport's neighbours.
Hammersmith & Fulham Council continues to oppose expansion at Heathrow and has supported a resident-led commission to investigate the potential effects of an extra runway.
Both the commission and the council have responded to the Airports Commission consultation, raising concerns over the fear of further blight on residents’ lives.
The government has recently begun consulting residents in West London following its decision in October 2016 to support Heathrow expansion.
The Department for Transport’s (DfT) consultation will come to Hammersmith Town Hall on Monday 6 March from 11am to 8pm.
For anyone that can’t attend the consultation day, you can respond online.
Resident-led H&F Commission on Airport Expansion (HFCAE)
The final report by a group of local residents investigating the possible expansion of Heathrow Airport was sent to the Airports Commission at the end of January 2015.
