Heathrow Airport Expansion
Proposals to expand Heathrow Airport have been revealed in more detail with major changes outlined for the A4, M25, terminal buildings, as well as the development of the third runway itself.
The proposals are part of a new 10-week public consultation, as Heathrow seeks the views of residents to the expansion of the airport. As part of the consultation, the public’s views are also being sought on the rules that could apply when Heathrow redesigns the airspace as part of the development.
No flight paths have yet been drawn up and Heathrow will submit a planning application after further consultation on the detailed proposals. Heathrow hopes to begin construction in early 2021, with the runway completed by the end of 2025.
In order to realise these plans Heathrow Airport will need to acquire land, businesses and residential property using Compulsory Purchase Powers. Further information of Kinney Green’s Compulsory Purchase services is available – https://www.kinneygreen.com/professional/compulsory-purchase/
