An extra £20,000 looks set to be allocated by the Royal Borough to fund a legal fight if Heathrow Airport is given permission to expand.
If approved, the borough will have allocated £50,000 to launch a judicial review if expansion is given the go-ahead by the Government, with a decision expected within days.
The council has joined forces with the London boroughs of Hillingdon, Richmond and Wandsworth to oppose the building of a third runway at Heathrow, but the airport said any judicial review would be 'bound to failure' if approval is given.
We want to know your thoughts.
Is the borough standing up for the will of its residents? Or is it a waste of money?
