“For my constituents in Richmond Park and for communities across South West London, from Wimbledon to Elmbridge, any expansion of Heathrow would be disastrous." Sarah Olney, MP for Richmond Park.
We recently wrote to local MPs to ask them to meet with local Back Heathrow supporters to discuss the benefits and challenges of building a new runway. However, we're sorry to say that your local MP, Sarah Olney declined the opportunity.
We wanted our supporters in Richmond to have the opportunity to speak directly to their MP about their views on their local hub airport. We know that thousands of jobs in the local area depend on the footfall and revenue that is brought in by Heathrow every day, and the access to international hubs gives Richmond residents the best chance to get abroad for holidays and business. Now that aviation is recovering from the impacts of Covid, our airport is getting back to pre-pandemic levels and a new runway would create jobs and allow us to compete better with rival European hub airports.
