Answer for RAF Northolt (6)

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Northolt is a suburban airport and is surrounded by tens of thousands of homes. I would like to see the number of people exposed to potentially harmful levels of aviation noise and poor air quality reduce, not increase. This is possible within a wider context of aviation growth. This highlights the need for a new hub airport in a location away from large residential populations.
