LONDON RUNWAY DECISION FACES FURTHER DELAY

- gov.uk

THE AIRPORTS COMMISSION inquiry into aviation expansion in South East England may be delayed for further public consultati­on.

Commission chairman Sir Howard Davies has opted to examine more evidence on the problems caused by air pollution. The consultati­on was due to end on May 29. The delay comes after the Supreme Court ordered the UK to do more to improve air quality.

There are three options for a new runway – a second at Gatwick, a third at Heathrow, or extending one of the two existing runways at Heathrow. The Commission had been expected to make its recommenda­tion shortly after May 7’s general election.
