London’s airport dilemma 

Royal Geographical Society, London, Tuesday 05 February 2013

It's one of the most important questions ever to face the UK. The location of London's airport hub will literally shape the country for the next 50 years.

This crucial debate will bring together the opposing views under one roof for the first time.

Issues to be addressed will include; Timescale, Heathrow's 76,000 jobs, noise pollution over West London, air pollution over central London, Transport links, HS2, wildlife in Thames estuary, and crucially which solution best improves the resilience of our urban infrastructure.

Increasingly, views of the major stakeholders in London's transport infrastructure and the UK's visionaries are polarising.

This debate will aim to get behind the commercial interests and expose a more comprehensive understanding of what is best for the country's long term interests and London's resilience.

Draft programme (subject to confirmation)
