Given that the conservative candidate for London Mayoralty is anti-heathrow expansion , it comes as no surprise.

I am for greater competition , it is actually deliverable and lower capital cost to the tax payer. It's Gatwick for me.

Billionaire Wins Approval for London Mayfair Mansion

Billionaire John Caudwell, the founder of mobile-phone retailer Phones4U Ltd., won approval to build a mansion in London’s affluent Mayfair district that’s more than 15 times the size of the average new U.K. home.

It’s part of a wider project of 29 houses and apartments given the go ahead by borough members late Tuesday, according to the Westminster Property Association, a lobby group for landlords. Caudwell can now develop the 1,329-square meter (14,300-square foot) home, more than half of which will be underground, at a parking lot site on South Audley Street.

Homes in Mayfair sell for about 2,750 pounds ($4,136) a square foot, according to broker Jones Lang LaSalle Inc. Values in the district rose 2.9 percent in the year through November, outperforming Knightsbridge and Belgravia, according to Knight Frank LLP, another broker.

Caudwell, who sold Phones4U for 1.46 billion pounds in 2006, plans to include a swimming pool, a gym, a business center and a cinema in the wider project, according to a filing to the borough.

The average new U.K. home measures about 85 square meters, according to the Royal Institute of British Architects.

Farcical.

The sooner they get a move on with Heathrow, the better.

Agreed, though the costs of expanding Heathrow seem to be going through the roof.

The refusal by the govt to permit Gatwick to expand to two runways for the last 20 years is equally farcical if not more so. This is a much more economic solution. If Heathrow and Gatwick were connected by a dedicated high speed link they could function as a single hub as far as travellers are concerned. Gatwick with its two terminals would become an appendage to Heathrow, and there is more room for expansion at Gatwick in the future whereas Heathrow with a third runway seems to be maxed out for ever.

Surely it must be far more economic and pragmatic to build such a rail link and add a runway at Gatwick than to embark on other options to address London's airport capacity issues.

Personally, I'm highly sceptical of that vision. Heathrow and Gatwick, despite being liked by high speed rail, still wouldn't function like one airport.

It's Heathrow that has the critical capacity issues and would give us the biggest economic benefit from having an additional runway. As city airport systems operate, it makes no sense to attempt to spread traffic around other airports, as that's not how hubs function. Heathrow is in competition with Amsterdam Schiphol (6 runways), Paris CdG (4 runways) and Frankfurt International (4 runways), and it's to those that we lose routes and traffic.

Many other cities use the multi-airport solution too.

New York (JFK , Newark and LaGuardia)
Tokyo (Haneda and Narita)
Shanghai (Hongqiao and Pudong)
Paris (Charles de Gaulle, Orly, Beauvais)
Moscow (Domodedovo and Sheremetyevo)
Frankfurt (Frankfurt and Hahn)

Furthermore Heathrow refuse to pay for the addational upgrades for the infrastructure needed for addational passenger numbers , they even refused to pay for Crossrail. Gatwick is served by rail much better than Heathrow currently is until the 2030s in order to mitigate the impacts of increased flights. The cost will have to be picked up by TFL , is not as if it's funding is being slashed is it ?

It's unlikely any site prep will commence until the early 2020s , given the scale of; relocation , demolition (around 700 homes and many listed buildings and business along the bath road) but also the planning that is needed. Gatwick needs to move a small industrial estate which is linked to the airport and supply side industries.

Raising those cities as cases only bolsters the need to expand Heathrow.

Heathrow is London's hub airport. The secondary airports are not hubs, they have a heavier emphasis on niches like point-to-point package holiday operations or business. In a similar context, Charles de Gaulle (4 runways) and Frankfurt International (4 runways) are the hubs of Paris and Frankfurt respectively.

As such, Heathrow is in competition for routes and traffic with Charles de Gaulle and Frankfurt International, not Luton, Stanstead, Orly or Hahn.

Heathrow refuse to fund to pay the required transport improvements , so the cost of that will fall to fare payers such as yourself and I. If Heathrow refuse to pay for the upgrades , that they clearly will benefit from the 2030s. Shouldn't they should contribute towards it ?

At present the rail access to Heathrow is poor in contrast to Gatwick which compounds the need for increased road journeys , it was a mistake for hs2 not to have a dedicated station which forces people to change at OOC or use roads instead. Whereas Gatwick already has through London trains at present to which will include Cambridge and Peterborough from 2018. Crossrail won't be fully operational until late 2018. Rail links to the Thames valley and south London are unlikely until 2025.

Crossrail will take over from Heathrow connect. The poor transport argument is not valid.
