Threat of flights from Northolt

Harefield Gazette - - OPINION -

I WOULD like to know why the coun­cil is throw­ing ratepay­ers’ money away on sup­pos­edly op­pos­ing the ex­pan­sion of Heathrow when over 500 res­i­dents in South Ruis­lip with a pe­ti­tion have been com­plain­ing to the leader of the coun­cil

Mr Pud­di­foot, MP John Ran­dall and now – for over 12 months– Boris John­son, our MP, about RAF Northolt be­ing al­lowed to be­come a pri­vate airport with MOD flights of 4,500 ris­ing with pri­vate flights to 17,500 since 2010.

And now the com­pany FlyBE ap­ply­ing to fly out of here, but no­body is in­ter­ested in the wel­fare of any of us even though pol­lu­tion, noise level is ris­ing also the dan­ger from these planes be­com­ing larger and so near to our homes.

There are also other ar­eas around this airport with the same con­cerns. It has been sug­gested by Anna Wil­liams that I men­tion I am work­ing along­side her (but for our area) who has the same prob­lem. D LEWINGTON Mahlon Av­enue Ruis­lip
