Please find below an email I received from the Bedford Park Society, and also some links from newspaper articles on the topic from the last couple of days:-

¬ Dear Resident,

The government will shortly announce its decision about the expansion of Heathrow and in particular about the third runway to the North-West of Heathrow.

If this is built it will result in a great increase in aircraft noise for residents of the Bedford Park Conservation Area and increases in levels of road traffic and air pollution in the area.

The government has promised to respond by the end of the year to the recommendation of the Davies Commission to build this runway. It is possible that the decision will be announced as early as 25 November.

It is therefore urgent that you make your voice heard on this question.

The Bedford Park Society has always opposed proposed expansion of Heathrow and will continue to do so.

The Bedford Park Society supports active groups, which oppose expansion and the new runway. The Society is a long standing member of the umbrella group HACAN and supports CHATR, Chiswick Against a Third Runway. The Society has agreed to make a substantial contribution to CHATR from its Fighting Fund.

The link below to our website provides practical information on the steps you can take to oppose this threat to our neighbourhood.

Please pass this email on to your neighbours and friends in the area.

It is helpful for us to know  your views and actions. Do feel free to communicate on this email address.

ABOVE ALL PLEASE ACT IMMEDIATELY TO INFLUENCE THE GOVERNMENT. IT WILL SOON BE TOO LATE.

The Committee
The Bedford Park Society
