CHATR Launches The ‘Heathrow Hurdles’ Campaign

Despite the rain and an early start, a large group of Chiswick residents gathered to launch the ‘Heathrow Hurdles Campaign’ outside Chiswick Town Hall on Monday 22 February. “These are hurdles that we believe Heathrow can never jump’ said Hamish Pringle who created the ‘Hurdles Campaign’ for HACAN. ‘They include pollution, noise, security, homes lost, cost, climate change, and the scale of the opposition.
