RAF Northolt

Thursday 7 September 2017, all day

Motion detail

“This Assembly notes that in recent years the Ministry of Defence has been steadily reducing the numbers of military flights from RAF Northolt, so that most flights from Northolt are now commercial.

 

This Assembly further notes that due to RAF Northolt’s military status, this has happened without the normal process of planning and consultation that would have been required if it were a commercial airport.

 

Recently the runway has been closed for strengthening in order to enable it to take larger jets. This Assembly believes that these developments are unacceptable.

 

This Assembly therefore calls on the Mayor to work with local residents in doing everything possible to campaign against RAF Northolt becoming a commercial airport.”
