Heathrow’s third runway is vital to uk, says grayling _ daily mail online

Chris Grayling will today herald the biggest shake up in airspace in generations, describing it as a ‘major step forward’ in preparing Britain for leaving the EU.

The Transport Secretary will push ahead with efforts to build a third runway at Heathrow, with the publication of the government’s long awaited National Policy Statement.

And he will publish proposals for the first major change British air traffic control for 50 years, using sat nav technology to enable more planes to fly in and out of all major UK airports along the same flight paths.

The National Policy Statement on Heathrow’s third runway will set out details of the project, including the compulsory purchase of 800 homes near the West London airport and plans to offer noise insulation for homeowners living under the flight path.

But amid fresh fears that more households will be blighted by noise from aircraft, Mr Grayling will argue the reforms are essential to post Brexit Britain as the country attempts to boost trade links around the world.

The Eurosceptic said: ‘Aviation expansion is important for the UK both in boosting our economy and jobs and promoting us on the world stage. Beautiful landscapes tumblr Leaving the EU is a new chapter for Britain and provides us with a great opportunity to forge a new role in the world.

‘We are determined to seize that opportunity and having the right infrastructure. Fantasy baseball rankings By backing the Northwest runway at Heathrow airport and publishing our proposals, we are sending out a clear signal that when we leave the EU, we are open for business.’

The draft policy statement will kick off a four month consultation period, giving opponents of Heathrow expansion, including local councils, MPs and residents another opportunity to fight back.

A group which protested against a second runway Gatwick, said the combination of a third runway at Heathrow and the modernisation of British airspace will cause misery for homeowners.

Salley Pavey, chair of the Communities Against Gatwick Noise and Emissions, said: ‘The concern now is the effect modernisation will have on those on the ground with multiple superhighways above people’s homes. Portfolio outdoor lighting transformer troubleshooting It will inevitably mean very high noise levels for those affected, every day and night, 365 days a year.’

The Department of Transport has also insisted that reforms to airspace will lead to less delayed flights and reduce the number of people affected by noise from aircraft by ensuring planes stick more rigidly to flight paths.

John Stewart, chair of anti heathrow expansion group HACAN said: ‘Chris Grayling has emphasised the post-Brexit benefits of a third runway by increasing connectivity to far-flung destinations in Asia and Africa but what about the price that will need to be paid in terms of worse noise and pollution for British citizens living under the new flight paths.

Ravi Govindia, leader of Wandsworth Council, said: ‘Our concern is that this is more like a marketing exercise than a genuine consultation. Garden state parkway The transport secretary’s comments suggest his mind is firmly made up and the flyer being sent to our residents is focused on the potential benefits of expanding Heathrow with no attempt to illustrate the very serious environmental damage it would bring.

‘For this consultation to have any meaning the Government must show Londoners where the new flightpaths serving this runway will be.

The draft National Policy Statement will be examined closely by local councils and environmental campaigners which argue an expanded Heathrow will breach strict air pollution limits, will blighting the lives of local residents.

This was temporarily blocked in the High Court this week. Hardscaping But they have pledged to mount a fresh challenge once the National Policy Statement is published later this year.

John Sauven from Greenpeace said: ‘Reading the transport secretary’s statement you’d think the third runway will be built in fantasy land with Walter Mitty as chief adviser.

‘Chris Grayling makes no mention of air pollution or carbon emissions despite knowing full well that expanding Heathrow will exacerbate both problems.
