Whilst we support the Policy in principle, given the status of the expansion of Heathrow as a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project (NSIP), we consider the Council should afford more weight to those sites which are proposed to be included in the proposals. We have detailed above how we contend the Council has incorrectly assessed Site A and has also ignored HAL's identification of this land for development simply because it is in the Green Belt. Whilst we contend that Site A does not per

"supporting southern rail access including the promotion of the Southern Light Rail (SLR) where there is benefit to communities in the Borough and the wider strategic network." This is a key point that needs to be seen through. The transport links south of the airport pale in comparison to airport links north of the airport. Towns such as Hayes, Uxbridge, Southall have better links, as well as a major London terminus, Paddington Startion, benefits from the Heathrow express and standard rail to

Whilst we are not in support of the expansion of Heathrow, it is primarily due to the potential impacts on the amenity of residents of any prospective development on the Land at Kestrel Stanwell Moor. It should be ensured that the expansion will not have any inappropriate impacts on existing properties within the locality of the airport. Furthermore, we are unsure of the relevance of the policy 'resisting inappropriate development in the Green Belt unless the harm is outweighed by very special c

Note: this is a Surrey Wildlife Trust comment only. The Trust is opposed to expansion of Heathrow airport as currently proposed, as we fail to see how facilitation of growth in air travel can ever become 'sustainable', in view of targets for reducing UK carbon emissions. Notwithstanding this, the Council's preferred policy approach is preferable to its alternative.

Policy SP7 does not reflect the reality of Spelthorne's relationship with Heathrow. The expansion of the airport is not sustainable and should not be described as such. We suggest instead Policy SP7 Heathrow Airport The Council will work to protect residents from the adverse impact of Heathrow expansion by * working strategically with local authorities around Heathrow Airport. * end of first para, replace 'provided that' by 'only if' iii) replace by 'refusing development that increases air,

The expansion of Heathrow Airport cannot ever be described as sustainable and it is ridiculous to suggest that anything Spelthorne does will alter this fact. The expansion will cause serious damage to Stanwell which will change the area for the worse permanently. Given that a DCO will be put in place, the suggestion of any ability for Green Belt protection by Spelthorne is just wishful thinking and misleading. The whole area will be massively disrupted well beyond the 15-year period of the plan

While Historic England does not endorse policy Policy SP7: Heathrow Airport we recognise the intention to safeguard the historic environment stated in section b)i should the airport expansion scheme be approved in due course.

Reference Paragraph (c): "resist development in the Green Belt unless harm is outweighed by very special circumstances" This must not include "economic needs" as used recently to justify approving the Shepperton Studios expansion involving building on 90 hectares of "strong" Green Belt land. The Council must stick to the 16 detailed requirements notified to Heathrow Ltd as essential to support the Heathrow expansion.

I would like to understand the environmental impact of this move and its knock on impact to global warming. Considerations seem to be given to economic growth in the area but not to quality of life for its residents. I would like to know how the plans contribute to Britains overall policy for reducing carbon emissions.
