LHR Runway 3

Great news about Heathrow's proposed third runway, which has taken a severe blow! Campaigners have won a High Court battle over the plans.

Councils, residents and green groups had said the government's approval of the runway was flawed by "conspicuously unfair" public consultations.

The group argued that the decision was at odds with climate change targets.

Lord Justice Carnwath, sitting in London, upheld their argument that the government's policy support for a third runway will need to be looked at again.

Sadly, this is not the end for runway 3, but it does mean it can't just be steamrollered through. Just yet.
