Buckinghamshire County Council Leader Martin Tett has welcomed today's Government's announcement about the development of Heathrow Airport.

'This is good news for Buckinghamshire, the Thames Valley and for the UK economy,' he said. 'Heathrow is the country's premier international gateway and post-Brexit, it's even more important that we are strong players in the global economy. Today's decision confirms this.

'Nevertheless, our support has always been conditional upon large-scale mitigation of its impact, particularly for the towns and villages of south Buckinghamshire, and the Iver area in particular.

'We will be demanding that this mitigation is delivered in a timely fashion to protect our residents and businesses.'
