Date set for Heathrow expansion consultation
Heathrow Airport has announced that statutory consultation on its expansion plans will begin on June 18 and end on September 13.
The consultation will allow individuals, communities and organisations to give feedback on the proposed expansion, which includes the building of a new third runway.
Using a series of events and technology such as augmented reality and audio, the airport is aiming to create an interactive experience during the consultations, as well as investing in the widespead publicising of its plans across print, TV, digital and streaming services incluing Spotify.
Work on the expansion is anticipated to span three decades, with the runway scheduled for 2026 and the final masterplan expected to be completed by 2050.
Emma Gilthorpe, Heathrow’s Executive Director for Expansion, said: “Heathrow’s expansion is a project of huge national and local significance, and it is critical to our country’s economic growth.
“An expanded hub airport will allow the country to access more of the world, create thousands of jobs locally and nationally and it will open up new trading routes.
“But we can’t deliver these plans alone. We urge everyone to have their say in this consultation, to shape our plans, and to help us deliver expansion in the fairest and most sustainable way.”
