Heathrow Airport has written to residents living in West Windsor asking for details of the property they occupy and ownership information. Many feel that the letter is intrusive. Some people are concerned that they are obliged to reply.
THIS IS NOT SO. THERE IS NO OBLIGATION TO REPLY
The West Windsor Residents’ Association endorses the following advice, which has been prepared by the campaign group, Stop Heathrow Expansion.
Their advice is:
1. The third runway is not a done deal.
2. You DO NOT have to provide the information that Heathrow requests on these
questionnaires for land referencing.
3. If you provide information it will go to Heathrow and they will share it. Ultimately, the airport’s plan (and required for this planning process if it continues) is to publish all the information you provide in a Book of Reference that everyone will be able to see – and presumably use however they wish.
4. Please DO NOT let this letter and accompanying paperwork upset or stress you. It can be binned with a clear conscience if that helps. Otherwise, just put it at the back of a drawer and get on with your life. If they contact you or knock on the door, you have the right to ignore them or say you will not be providing your details.
