An air­tight case against the air­port

Harefield Gazette - - OPINION -

CLIENT Earth has won its High Court case against the Gov­ern­ment for its fail­ure to con­trol air pol­lu­tion.

This is the se­cond case the Gov­ern­ment has lost.

Heathrow Ltd al­ready ex­ceeds the le­gal lim­its, this judge­ment has now ruled out com­pletely the Gov­ern­ment plans to build a third run­way and in­crease flights by some 300,000 and road jour­neys by 25 mil­lion per year over a densely pop­u­lated area of West Lon­don.

There are other le­gal cases in the pipe­line in­clud­ing one from the Prime Min­is­ter’s own con­stituency of Maiden­head.

The third run­way project is now dead. ROY D BAR­WICK Moor Lane Har­mondsworth
