Govern­ment has got off the fence

Harefield Gazette - - OPINION -

MY fam­ily with all the other lo­cal res­i­dents in our area are de­lighted that the govern­ment has fi­nally got off of the fence and fi­nally made the right de­ci­sion on air­port ex­pan­sion.

Many peo­ple I know are glad that there is fi­nally some cer­tainty about what’s go­ing to hap­pen to Heathrow and con­se­quently, to their homes. Now we have that cer­tainty, ev­ery­one can at last make plans for the fu­ture.

The Govern­ment ap­proval of a new run­way is just the first step of many. Most lo­cal peo­ple I know sup­port Heathrow ex­pan­sion, but there is a small mi­nor­ity who are against it and will con­tinue to op­pose it no mat­ter what.

Now the hard work be­gins and build­ing a new run­way will take

time. But at least we have the cer­tainty of know­ing what is go­ing to hap­pen so that all of those af­fected can at last get on with their lives and make plans for the fu­ture.
