Heathrow Airport expansion
On 25 October 2016 the Government announced its preferred scheme for meeting the need for additional airport capacity in the south-east of England is a new north-west runway at Heathrow Airport.
Public consultation has now been launched. The Department for Transport is holding a series of free local events to provide further information and answer questions. The events are open to everyone and there is no need to book a place. Locally, the Department for Transport held an event at The Hythe Centre on Monday 20 February 2017.
