Chair’s Welcome

I am delighted as Chair of the Friends to welcome you to our website. Bushy Park and Home Park are two wonderful large green oases in the south west corner of London. Feeling wild, they are natural places with ancient histories, fascinating heritage and superb wildlife. Both are Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSIs) containing rare species. These are places to be enjoyed and conserved. Which is why the Friends exist, campaigning, supporting and protecting the parks, and enhancing visitors’ enjoyment with information, advice and guidance.

We are always pleased to receive feedback. You can contact us by clicking here.

Richmond Park needs your help

Richmond Park needs your help

Heathrow Flight Path consultation

Important: Richmond Park needs your help
Please act before 4 March

Heathrow Flight Path consultation
Heathrow wants to route new flight paths directly over Richmond Park. The aircraft will be low, loud, very frequent and most days. They will start in two years’ time (2021) and become the norm when/if the 3rd runway opens in 2026.

Heathrow are consulting on these proposals now, but nowhere in the consultation documents do they recognise the importance of Richmond Park. We must change this.

If you care about Richmond Park, please stand up for the Park and email them now, making the points below. We’ve had expert advice that this is a critical stage in Heathrow’s development of the new flight paths and if we don’t act now we will have no voice in the decisions.

Please email your views to Heathrow at feedback@heathrowconsultation.com
