Conservatives call on MPs and residents to keep saying no to 3rd runway

 

Following a council motion earlier this year to support expansion at Gatwick, Leader of the Council Cllr David Burbage has written to the local MPs to gather their support.

 

Cllr George Bathurst said: “Heathrow already causes unacceptable disturbance for many residents of the Royal Borough, particularly at night; as Heathrow’s uncooperative nature has highlighted, it is clear that Heathrow’s expansion would make this situation dramatically worse, blighting the lives of thousands more residents yet with no room for the new housing to support the supposed economic growth.  We continue to campaign against this at every possible level.”

 

Cllr David Burbage (Con, Bray) added: “Our MPs have already been supportive of our position on Heathrow, it is just as important, though, that we actively support the alternative option at Gatwick.

 

“At every stage we will continue to campaign on behalf of our residents – but it is important that residents also continue to make their voices heard loud and clear. I urge those affected to continue to help us keep the pressure up on Heathrow.”
