Policy SP7 (Heathrow Airport): We would highlight that the CVRP CIC objects to the expansion of the airport because of the damaging environmental impact. We do not therefore, concur with your support ‘in principle’. That said, we ask that the environmental criteria in this policy be strengthened to draw in, for example, comprehensive improvements across the zone around the airport down to and beyond Staines Moor - to the river systems, the green corridors, their biodiversity qualities and connectivity for active travel. Consistent with our comment against 10 a) above, a criteria should be added about minimising the environmental impact of any Southern Rail Access.
