Public Meeting on Heathrow Expansion

HACAN are organising a public meeting in Blackheath on Heathrow Expansion. Unfortunately it clashes with full council so I won't be able to go. John Stewart is a good speaker and I would recommend it to anyone concerned about the impact of airport expansion, wanting to know more or get involved in the Heathrow campaign.

Wednesday 23rd April, 7.30 pm, Recital Room, Blackheath Halls, 23 Lee Rd, SE3 9RQ. Speaker: John Stewart, Chair HACAN

What the Government’s proposals could mean for South East London :

  • All flights will land over South East London if Heathrow Expansion plans go ahead
  • Introduction of ‘Mixed-Mode’ at Heathrow 730 flights a day
  • Third Runway 950 flights a day
  • ‘Mixed-Mode and a Third Runway 1100 flights a day
  • The maps produced by the Department during its recent consultation on Heathrow expansion show that all aircraft landing over London will join their final landing path as far east as Woolwich and Bexley and then fly in two parallel paths to Heathrow.
  • The northern flight path: Greenwich – Peckham – Camberwell – Vauxhall
  • The southern flight path: Blackheath – Deptford – Dulwich – Stockwell/Brixton
