Heathrow Airport has launched its largest ever consultation as part of its masterplan for expansion.

The Airport Expansion Consultation, which runs until 13 September 2019, gives the public the opportunity to provide feedback on Heathrow’s proposals for the future layout of the airport.

It proposes the airport’s approach in phases, with the new runway to be constructed in the first phase by 2026.

The rest of the airport infrastructure, including new terminals, will be completed by around 2050.

The consultation is seeking feedback on plans to operate Heathrow and the impacts of the airport’s growth.

The public can also provide their views on plans to manage the environmental impacts of expansion, including a proposed Heathrow Ultra Low Emissions Zone, Heathrow Vehicle Access Charge, and a proposed 6.5-hour ban on scheduled night flights.

In order to make the plans a reality, Heathrow has invested in new technology, including a physical model of the future airport with features such as augmented reality, sound booths to demonstrate the effect of noise insulation on properties overflown by aircraft.

Heathrow Airport executive director for expansion Emma Gilthorpe said: “Expansion must not come at any cost. That is why we have been working with partners at the airport, in local communities, and in Government to ensure our plans show how we can grow sustainably and responsibly, with environmental considerations at the heart of expansion.

“This consultation is an opportunity for people to have their say on our preferred masterplan, so it’s really important that as many people as possible take part. We look forward to hearing your views.”

This statutory consultation follows Heathrow’s Airspace and Future Operations Consultation held earlier this year. It will inform the airport’s Development Consent Order application, which is expected to be submitted in 2020.

The Heathrow expansion is expected to deliver new domestic routes and create new opportunities for businesses across the UK.
