Heathrow Airport: Noise

Volume 486: debated on Tuesday 20 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what estimate he has made of the number of people living in the London Borough of Havering who would be subject to additional aircraft noise should dual mode use of the runways at London Heathrow Airport be adopted. (248650)

Noise impacts of possible development options at Heathrow were presented in the November 2007 consultation document but not borough by borough. We announced on 15 January our decision not to support mixed mode on the existing runways as an interim measure ahead of a third runway.
