Responding to the Supreme Court’s ruling that the expansion of Heathrow Airport can proceed, Labour’s London Assembly Environment Spokesperson, Leonie Cooper AM, said:
“Londoners will share my massive disappointment at this decision. For years, many Londoners have spoken against expanding Heathrow Airport, due to the unacceptable levels of noise pollution, CO2 emissions and the impact on air quality across London.
“This decision, brought about because the Government refused to listen to Londoners, will set back our efforts to reduce noise and tackle air pollution in the capital – and will quickly reverse the improvements in air and noise pollution we’ve seen with the reduction of flights during the pandemic.”
