Heathrow Land Referencing Letter; How to respond Part 1

Heathrow Airport sent out a Land referencing mail shot to property owners in Windsor in early February 2019. What does it mean? How should you respond? Here are  some initial comments before a more detailed post next week.

A number of residents have called me to express concerns about the implications about completing or not completing the questionnaire/survey sent out by Heathrow Airport Ltd on 7 February 2019.

What does it mean? What is it about? What happens if I do, or if I don’t respond in time?

On your behalf, I am consulting with a range of experts and will publish their thoughts and guidance later this week in my next post, “Heathrow Land Referencing Mail Shot; how to respond Part 1”; this will give you at least a month to consider the information and how you wish to respond or not respond.

The industry experts include;

  • John Holdstock from the West Windsor Residents Association
  • John Stewart from HACAN
  • Chris Nash from RBWM

Accountably yours,


WWRA Councillor, Wisdom Da Costa, Clewer North, Windsor
