Statement from Hounslow Council
Published: Thursday, 27th February 2020
Councillor Steve Curran, Leader of Hounslow Council, said:
“Hounslow Council has a long-held position that Heathrow should be better, not bigger – whether that be additional flights, a third runway or a relaxation on runway operations and night flights.
“Nevertheless, we want the airport to be successful as it plays such an important role in our economic success and status as the gateway borough to London. I hope that the Government and Heathrow Airport can agree a way forward that protects our environment as well as allowing the airport to flourish.
“We remain committed to working constructively with Heathrow, supporting its ambition to improve while ensuring the best outcomes for local residents and businesses.”
