heathrow-airportA public consultation has been sought by Heathrow, Europe’s biggest airport on how the airport around it will be managed.



The proposed development of the third runway at Europe’s biggest airport is aimed at mitigating environmental impact of expansion.



The plan backed by Prime Minister Theresa  May of £16bn expansion of the London hub in October 2016 after decades of government indecision  has been controversial.



The critics highlighted the possible impact on air quality in London and the noise level.



Local views on the environmental impact of expansion and how the airspace around the Heathrow is managed.




Airport’s executive director for expansion Emma Gilthorpe said that  from the past couple of  year they had worked hard to evolve the expansion plans and have come up with several new options to deliver it more responsibly and affordably.



The new discussions is focused on the airport’s plan for infrastructure and impact on the local  community. These discussions are separate from the previously announced Government consultation on the National Policy Statement.





In the first half of 2018 the Government aims to give the go-ahead to the new runway said the transport secretary Chris Grayling.


The latest consultation is expected to launch on 17 January and will be operative for 10 weeks.
