Heathrow Expansion Announced
Iver Parish Council is disappointed at the government announcement confirming a third runway at Heathrow Airport. Our calculations place the runway only 750m from the Parish boundary and the nearest residents.
Now this decision has been taken however, we must work to mitigate for residents on four fronts :
Noise – which will be significant as two new flight paths will go directly over the Parish.
Air pollution - increase
Traffic – increase in volume
Freight – double the present cargo activity is planned, much of this travels through the narrow rural roads of the Parish.
