There were approximately 1800 responses to stage one of the consultation exercise. The following table shows responses received which commented specifically on the position at Heathrow area:

Category Number of responses
Local authorities 22
Environmental groups 33
Individuals 850
Petitions 500

Responses were also received from airlines, airline organisations and other industry representatives but their responses tended to include all three airports and were not generally Heathrow specific.

Responses from the stage two consultation are still being analysed and a summary, including some numerical analysis will be available, in due course.
