London City Airport has released the findings of a poll which showed that “77% of East London business decision-makers are in favour of London City Airport’s expansion plans.” Comres, on behalf of City Airport, polled “business decision-makers” in Canary Wharf, Westminster, Soho and the City.
ComRes surveyed 1,002 business decision-makers in Central London business districts by telephone between 11th February and 2nd March 2016. Respondents were based from Canary Wharf in the East, through the City of London and Bank, to Westminster and Soho in the West of the capital: http://www.comres.co.uk/polls/london-city-airport-business-survey/.
But HACAN East campaigners have dismissed the poll as 'dodgy'. They say it stretches the definition of East London beyond belief. It places Soho in East London and suggest that London City’s new PR team need to brush up on their geography pretty quickly. Soho is East London?!
