H&F reaffirm anti-Heathrow stance

Ahead of the release of of the Airports Commission report into the future of airport capacity in London, Hammersmith & Fulham Council has reaffirmed its opposition to expansion at the Airport.

The Davies Commission is due to report imminently.

Cllr Wesley Harcourt, Cabinet Member for Environment, Transport and Technical Services, said: “It would put extra pressure on our roads and increase air pollution. Overall, we consider that the potential impacts caused by adding 250,000 flights a year and doubling passenger numbers to 150 million are so great that no amount of mitigation measures could make expansion acceptable”.

H&F Council set up a resident-led commission which reported back earlier this year. The borough is part of the anti-Heathrow 2M Group.
