Runways UK

Following the success of the Grange Tower event at the start of the year (see BTN 28 January) Runways UK is to run a second in its series of topic-specific events within the airport capacity debate.  This one-day conference at The Guildhall, London, on 26 June explores the implications of the runway schemes under consideration by the Airports Commission for the property sector.

Both Gatwick and Heathrow have confirmed attendance and are expected to present their newly updated schemes (to be submitted to the Airports Commission on 14 May) together with key proponents and opponents of each one.

Confirmed speakers include:

John Holland-Kaye, Heathrow Airport Ltd
Alastair McDermid, Gatwick Airport Ltd
Steve Costello, Heathrow Hub Ltd
Huw Thomas, Foster + Partners
Lord Bill Bradshaw, Lib Dem spokesman on Transport
Crispin Blunt, MP Reigate
David Hodge, Leader Surrey County Council
Paul Carter, Leader Kent County Council

The programme will look at the various issues concerning land use planning, property values and commercial development opportunity local to each scheme, along with more macro questions on how each solution might impact the development of London and the South-East in the future in terms of housing, surface transport and economic generation and regeneration.  www.runwaysuk.com
