Is Key decision?: Yes
Is subject to call in?: Yes
To approve the County Council response to the statutory Heathrow airport expansion consultation.
That the consultation response submitted to Heathrow Airport Ltd and attached at Annex 1 to the submitted report was agreed.
Reason for decision:
The consultation response considers the potential impact of HAL’s proposed scheme on the Council’s services, residents and businesses. The response is in line with the 9 October 2018 Full Council resolution, which sets out the Council’s position that the environmental and infrastructure issues associated with expansion should be satisfactorily addressed. The comments in the response highlight the considerable concerns that this Council has in relation to the expansion proposals and some comments repeat points made at both a political and officer level during ongoing engagement with HAL on scheme development in bilateral meetings and through the Council’s membership of the Heathrow Strategic Planning Group (HSPG). There are many issues that remain to be addressed and more information must be provided to enable the likely effects to be fully understood.
