‘Silent ma­jor­ity’ for air­port ex­pan­sion

Harefield Gazette - - OPINION -

I AM writ­ing to you be­cause I ob­ject against the way Hilling­don coun­cil are us­ing lo­cal tax pay­ers’ money ap­pos­ing the Heathrow air­port ex­pan­sion.

I live in West Dray­ton near to the pro­posed third run­way and I be­lieve it’s nec­es­sary for Lon­don and the UK to com­pete in the world mar­ket. Par­tic­u­larly after Brexit. How dare coun­cil lead­ers take it for granted?

Heathrow has pro­vided jobs for lo­cal peo­ple for years and with the house build­ing and growth of the lo­cal pop­u­la­tion. It will make it needed more than ever.

I be­lieve I speak for a silent ma­jor­ity. They don’t speak for me or thou­sands of other lo­cal peo­ple. MICHAEL PLOWRIGHT Money Lane West Dray­ton
