On the 20th March 2018, Heathrow Airport held its first ‘listening event’ for the people of Stanwell Moor.
The event that gave residents an opportunity to voice their opinions on issues and to inform the airport of their concerns was very well attended.
A packed-out village hall certainly let Rob Gray and his team know what we want and what we expect from an airport that has been ignoring us for decades!
The Sell to Heathrow Campaign that started all of this off was very well supported and Heathrow now knows that Stanwell Moor and its residents has a new residents association and a new voice.
What are you doing about this taxi blight, we don’t want a detention centre in our midst, why are even more planes flying over our village, what are you doing about aircraft pollution, what new facilities are we going to get. Why wasn’t Stanwell Moor included in the WPOZ and when are you going to correct this were just some of the calls of the day. So it’s onwards and upwards from here…
Rob Gray said: I am very surprised at the turn-out for this event. We are taking away many things from this evening and we look to work closely with the people of Stanwell Moor and its new residents association.
Lots for them to think about!
Jim McIlroy and Rob Gray agreed to hold regular meetings as we seek to resolve village related issues now and in the future.
