Sarah Olney - Lib Dem Parliamentary Candidate for Richmond Park, Munira Wilson - Lib Dem Parliamentary Candidate for Twickenham and Sir Ed Davey - MP for Kingston and Surbiton, have responded to the Heathrow consultation. Deadline 23:55pm Friday 13th September.
They said: We are responding to the Heathrow Airport Expansion Consultation on behalf of the communities in the Twickenham, Richmond Park and Kingston and Surbiton Parliamentary constituencies.
We wish to unequivocally state our opposition to Heathrow expansion. The economic benefits do not justify the environmental costs or the negative impacts on nearby residents.
In line with the local Liberal Democrat Party and Green Party manifesto promises at the 2018 council elections, Richmond Council is implementing a 20mph speed limit for the Borough. The new speed limit is being rolled out in phases across the borough in 2019 and 2020.
Reducing traffic speed will make our roads safer for pedestrians and cyclists, as well as for drivers.
Following the Autumn 2019 public consultation, the Twickenham Riverside Design Panel is considering the public views and evaluating the shortlisted designs. The winning architectural firm will be announced within a few months. The Design Panel will then work with the winning architect to develop a final plan for the site.
