Asked Of: 
The Mayor


Princes water skiing club was a world class sporting facility which was closed in November 2012 as a precursor of the sites sale to Heathrow Airport Holdings Limited. The site is much beloved and an action group has been trying to save this unique sporting facility. Will the Mayor pressure Heathrow Airport Holdings Limited to enter meaningful negotiations with the Princes Action group to secure a future for this facility?

My Sports Commissioner is already well aware of this issue and is involved in discussions with representatives of the Princes Club. I, like her, am very keen to see water skiing continue at the site if at all possible and we will continue to talk to local partners to help ensure that this happens.
