PROTESTORS against plans to develop a dual carriageway through a cemetery are to hold a second public meeting.
This follows the last meeting reported on October 8 where more than 500 people opposed the plans for BAA's proposals to build the road through Cherry Lane Cemetery in Shepiston Lane, Harlington. The development would aid the relocation of junction 4 of the M4 in the event of Heathrow Airport being expanded.
At the last meeting Hayes and Harlington MP John McDonnell and Hillingdon councillor Keith Burrows vowed to stand against bulldozers if the plans go ahead.
The next meeting will be held at the Immaculate Heart of Mary Church, Botwell Lane, Hayes on November 19 at 7.30pm.
Natasha La Mothe, a spokesperson for Cherry Lane Against Development (CLAD), said: "Since the last meeting we have had overwhelming support from Hillingdon Council, and we want to make sure this campaign is kept at the top of the agenda because the cemetery is a serious threat. And we are not out of the woods yet even though we have so much support.
"We have gained momentum from the exceptional public support we received last time and we want to capitalise on this to make sure this plan doesn't go ahead.
She said the Government will have reached a decision by December.
