BIFA urges vote on third Heathrow runway

May 16, 2018

Robert Keen, BIFA’s Director General said: “A vote in favour would effectively give planning permission for the construction of the Northwest Runway at Heathrow Airport.” He added that this would be long overdue. “We should not forget that the government gave its backing to the development of a new runway at Heathrow in October 2016. It really is well beyond time for action to be taken on this matter.”
