In its project for 2050, London Heathrow Airport plans to add a third runway. To discuss this project, a 12-week long debate was opened to public opinion. This plan has been confirmed a year ago by the Parliament but is contested.

This development for the airport is to cope with the rising number of passenger and to help “Airport charges to stay close to 2016 levels”.

During three months, citizens will be able to express their thoughts on the new runway, road accesses, infrastructures and the ecological impact of this extension. Some propositions, concerning the latter will be presented such as a low emission zone, paying road access and a flight restriction during night time.

Three main points will be examined:

  • How to exploit the third runway and night flights, during the construction of the runway, the two others could receive more planes
  • The effects on local communities and ecology
  • Plans to manage this extension and how to limit the impact on populations, real estate compensations, noise policies etc.
