BPF statement on Heathrow expansion decision

25 Oct 2016

Melanie Leech, chief executive of the British Property Federation said: "We welcome the Government’s decision on London airport capacity expansion which is long overdue, even though we recognise this is part of a process rather than an end in itself. We still have a long way to go before Heathrow's capacity is finally increased. In Brexit Britain it is essential that we invest in infrastructure and demonstrate clearly that we are open for business. In the meantime we hope to see swift decisions on and commitment to other major infrastructure projects that support regeneration and investment.”
