Ex­pan­sion dam­age is un­der­es­ti­mated

Harefield Gazette - - OPINION - House

THE Davies Com­mis­sion re­port at last ac­knowl­edges the ‘en­vi­ron­men­tal stress’ that our area is al­ready un­der and ad­mits that there would be a ‘sub­stan­tial neg­a­tive im­pact on air qual­ity’.

How­ever, the com­mis­sion mas­sively un­der­es­ti­mates the im­pact of Heathrow ex­pan­sion on the over­all qual­ity of life of lo­cal peo­ple.

Nev­er­the­less, it is in­creas­ingly ap­par­ent that Heathrow ex­pan­sion is the least at­trac­tive op­tion for air­port growth.
