LookwestLondon is holding a free business seminar focussed on a sustainable future for Heathrow Airport and its contribution to the economy in the sub-region, and to Park Royal and Ealing in particular.
The breakfast Seminar will be held in Park Royal on 21 April, 2016. See full details, and book your place.
Heathrow is a key contributor to the West London economy, both directly in terms of employment at the airport and in companies closely related to it, and through the connections it makes available for businesses to assist the export of goods and services.
It enables better business for many businesses in Ealing and around West London, and in Park Royal in particular it allows a wide range of businesses to export all over the World, and to import goods and ship on to the rest of the UK.
It brings issues though – a successful airport brings traffic, both in the air and on the road. How can this be managed for the existing airport, and, with an eye to the future, for a potentially larger one? And what opportunities exist for businesses now and in the future?
With a pro-active approach to surface transport management can we actually reduce traffic on the roads around Ealing and Park Royal? Can we manage the flight paths and approach and take off routes to reduce any noise issues that might arise? And can we improve air quality while increasing business?
