Heathrow’s proposed expansion – the Scoping Reports

Heathrow’s proposed expansion – the Scoping Reports

These are the Pre-application Scoping Reports submitted to the Secretary of State on 21st May 2018, and adopted on 29th June 2018

The application has a very long way to go yet, and is expected to be the subject of many court cases, challenges as to who will finance the proposal, and very serious issues around air and noise pollution. These documents set out the details of the planning procedures, and in Volume 2 the accompanying maps cover numerous detailed plans from road layout changes, historical sites, warehousing and new parking provisions, wildlife habitats and more.
