A High Court challenge against the government’s approval of a third runway at Heathrow Airport has failed.

Campaigners against the plans had hoped to have the decision declared unlawful.

The judicial review was brought by Hillingdon, Richmond, Wandsworth and Windsor and Maidenhead councils and Greenpeace UK.

They argued the government failed to consult local communities or recognise the project’s unlawful impact on air quality.

But lawyers for the Transport Secretary argued the judicial review should not be heard until after the consultation on the government’s National Policy Statement (NPS) on aviation – due later this year – had occurred.

The campaigners argued the government had already made its decision.

The case was struck out by Mr Justice Cranston on the basis the court had no jurisdiction to hear the claim.
