ITV London today revealed Boris Johnson plans to spend an extra £2m on lobbying for a new airport in the Thames Estuary. The mayor has already spent over £3m of London taxpayer's money in an attempt to persuade government that his plan should be taken forward.
Dr Onkar Sahota, Labour London Assembly for Ealing & Hillingdon said his plans could create 'economic chaos' for his constituents in Hillingdon and Ealing.
Mayor Boris Johnson has laid out his plans with Hillingdon Council leader Ray Puddifoot this morning.
Options for the new area include named like Heathrow City, Heathrow Park and Heathrow Gardens.
The Mayor's idea for Heathrow City would include 80,000 homes and create 90,000 jobs. The terminals would be shopping centres.
Hillingdon's options include a London City-type airport to the north west of Heathrow.
The Mayor's report on redeveloping the Heathrow site claims 90,000 new jobs could be created as well as homes for 190,000 people.
