While I understand there was local consultation, including with LB Hillingdon Council, TfL and the GLA were not involved in the consultation and assessment process, despite previous Ministerial commitments that any changes in airfield use would be subject to thorough consultation.

I understand that the decision permits Northolt to accommodate 5,000 additional commercial air traffic movements (flights) per year.
