Campaigners against the planned third runway at Heathrow Airport have called a public meeting for residents living in the Richmond and Kew areas to learn more about the plans.

Heathrow Airport is currently consulting on its “preferred masterplan” for expansion of the airport, which includes plans for the construction of a third runway, modernised airspace and additional flights.

The Heathrow Campaign group, a joint initiative opposing the expansion, comprised of The Richmond Society, Friends of Richmond Green, and The Kew Society, is hosting this public meeting so that residents living in Kew and Richmond can learn more about the plans.

Topics of discussion will include the airport's expanded operations, noise and air pollution, pollution from surface traffic and aircraft, as well as the impact the expansion will have on the surrounding environment.

Panel members will include Nigel Milton, Director of Communications for Heathrow Airport, Cait Hewitt, Deputy Director, Aviation Environment Federation and Councillor Martin Elengorn, Chair of the Environment, Sustainability, Culture and Sports Services Committee for Richmond Council.

The meeting will be held on Tuesday, July 23 at 7.30pm at Duke Street Church in Richmond.
