The London Borough of Hillingdon ( ) is the westernmost borough in Greater Londonmarker, Englandmarker. It is home to London Heathrow Airportmarker and Brunel Universitymarker.

History

The borough was formed in 1965 from the Municipal Borough of Uxbridgemarker, Hayes and Harlington Urban District, Ruislip-Northwood Urban District and Yiewsley and West Drayton Urban District of Middlesexmarker.

The councils involved were initially unable to decide upon a name, with Keith Joseph suggesting "Uxbridge" in October 1963, later revised to Hillingdon.

Economy

British Airways is headquartered in Waterside, Harmondsworthmarker, in Hillingdon. The building officially opened in 1998.

Parks and recreation

The London Borough of Hillingdon is responsible for 239 parks and open spaces within its boundaries. Since much of the area is within the green belt, and as it is one of the least densely populated of all the London boroughs, there are large areas of land properly called open space. They range in size from the Colne Valleymarker corridor to the smallest gardens and playing fields.

Harmondsworth Moor, a park owned by the borough, is administered by British Airways on behalf of the borough. After British Airways planned to create a new headquarters in 1992, the airline agreed to restore a former landfill to what is now Harmondsworth Moor.
