    Heathrow Airport Expansion Consultation -- Wimbledon event Saturday 17 August 2019

    Heathrow Airport Expansion Consultation 18 June 2019—13 September 2019—local events as the expansion may affect you

    Members of the Heathrow team will be present to speak to, consultation documents will be available, as will videos and animations, a scale model and sound demonstrations.

    We are proposing to expand Heathrow, which involves building a new runway, changing how our airport operates and carefully managing the way we grow.

    We have held two previous consultations on changes to the airport and the way it operates, one in 2018 and one earlier this year. Since then, we have been carefully considering the feedback received and have used your comments to help develop our proposals.

    We are now carrying out our statutory Airport Expansion Consultation to show you our latest proposals and we would like to hear your views.

    This is your opportunity to give us your feedback on:

    —Our preferred layout for the airport, including the location of the new runway, taxiways, terminals and other infrastructure

    —Our preferred options for how we will operate the airport in the future

    —How we will manage and mitigate the effects of expansion, including property compensation and approaches to noise and air quality

    email any questions about the consultation to: info@heathrowconsultation.com or

    call our freephone number 0800 307 7996 (M-F, 9:00am to 6:00pm)
