Greg Hands MP Announces Heathrow Event

Local MP, Greg Hands, is pleased to announce that he has organised a Heathrow Airport consultation event for his constituents in Fulham and Chelsea.

Heathrow Airport has been holding public consultation events across London and even some of the Home Counties, on  their proposals for a third runway and on the management of the airspace over the South East of England. Unfortunately, Heathrow had not organised an event to take place in Fulham or Chelsea, despite the massive impact that aeroplanes have on local residents’ daily lives.

This additional consultation event organised by Greg Hands MP will take place on Friday, 23 March, from 1-2pm at Fulham Library, 598 Fulham Rd, London, SW6 5NX. The nearest Underground station is Parsons Green on the District Line. In terms of accessibility, there is a lift from pavement level to the ground floor and the first floor. There is a fully accessible lavatory.

This event will allow local residents to obtain information from representatives of Heathrow Airport before submitting their views formally.

Commenting on Heathrow Airport’s consultation, local MP, Greg Hands, said: “I know that the proposed expansion of Heathrow Airport is a disappointing prospect for many of my constituents in Fulham and Chelsea. I remain opposed to the prospect of a third runway at Heathrow, and I have been campaigning for a ban on night flights for more than a decade.

“I look forward to hosting this Heathrow consultation event on 23 March, which will allow local residents to get their views heard. I shall make my own submission to this consultation in due course, and I urge all of my constituents to do the same.

“If you know of anyone who might be interested in this consultation event, please do pass on the details, and I look forward to seeing you at there next week.”
