Planning application for the practical ending of the Cranford Agreement
Background on the planning application for the proposed creation of additional taxiways to serve the Northern Runway.

Background
The Cranford Agreement was a binding commitment the UK government made in 1952 to the residents of Cranford to reduce the impact of aircraft noise on residents. It prohibits, under normal Heathrow Airport operations, easterly airplane take-offs (i.e. towards central London) on the northern runway. On 15 January 2009, the then UK government announced that it was ending the Cranford Agreement (as part of consultations on a proposed Third Runway). In September 2010 the current UK government reaffirmed the decision to end the Cranford Agreement.

What is the planning application about?
On 17 May 2013 a planning application was submitted by Heathrow Airport Limited for the creation of a new hold area at the western end of the northern runway, the construction of new access and exit taxiways and the construction of a five metre high acoustic noise barrier to the south of Longford Village. The application was put to the London Borough of Hillingdon Major Cases Planning Committee with an officer recommendation to refuse the application. The Committee resolved to support the officer recommendation and planning permission was refused on 21 March 2014.

On 17 September 2014, Heathrow Airport Ltd appealed to the Planning Inspectorate against the council's decision to refuse planning permission. The appeal was heard by way of a Public Inquiry that commenced on 2 June for a period of three weeks. The Planning Inspector who heard the appeal has informed the council that he intends to submit his report to the Secretary of State in November 2015 and therefore a final decision on the appeal will not be received until 2016.

Details of the planning application and the appeal

Possible compensation
When the Government made the decision in 2010 to end the Cranford Agreement it stated that it would look to Heathrow Airport Limited to provide proper consideration to mitigate the impacts of the development. As part of the planning process, Heathrow Airport Limited have submitted Planning Agreements that intend to provide financial assistance and the offer to undertake work to properties for those likely to be affected by the proposal. It is the council's case that such measures are inadequate.
