CAMPAIGNERS against a third runway at Heathrow have launched a new initiative entitled Heathrow’s Preferred Disasterplan.

The title is a reference to the current consultation on Heathrow’s Preferred Masterplan for expansion, which the airport launched in June and runs until September 13.

Stop Heathrow Expansion, the group behind the new campaign, is supported by Hillingdon Council and John McDonnell, the Hayes and Harlington MP.

People closest to Heathrow are now receiving an information booklet, How a Third Runway Will Affect You and Your Family, from the group with its views of the main impacts on West Drayton, Hayes and the Heathrow Villages.

It has organised three public meetings so local residents can discuss the current consultation and hear more about how to oppose Heathrow’s plans.

  • PINKWELL: Monday, July 15, Pinkwell Primary School, Pinkwell Lane, UB3 1PG
  • HEATHROW VILLAGES: Tuesday, July 16, Heathrow Primary School, Harmondsworth Lane, Sipson, UB7 0JQ
  • WEST DRAYTON: Friday, July 19, Yiewsley & West Drayton Community Centre, 228 Harmondsworth Road, UB7 9JL

All the meetings start at 7pm and will finish around 8.30.

Hillingdon Council leader Ray Puddifoot will be speaking at the meeting on Monday, opposition group leader Cllr Peter Curling on Tuesday and John McDonnell on Friday.

Stop Heathrow Expansion chair Jackie said: “It is left to us to provide the true scale of Heathrow’s monumental expansion proposals, but we will do so without Heathrow’s usual gloss and spin. Expansion is far from certain and the key message to residents is that it can be stopped.”
