Stop Heathrow Expansion

We oppose further expansion of Heathrow. We call on the Government and BAA to drop plans to: build a third runway and a sixth terminal; and to increase the number of flights using the existing runways by getting rid of runway alternation.

Discussion

  • Maureen McLean For those of us already having to put up with daily noise and pollution from aircraft at LHR, expanding Heathrow will make the situation even worse for us. More aircraft apparently flying much lower will mean even less sleep, more pollution and more stress. That with the increased traffic on the already chronically over congested M4 will make living in the area intolerable. I dont want to have to sell the home that I love and be forced to leave the area for some peace and quiet. The M4 corridor is already very over populated and the expansion would only make it worse. Gatwick is a much better solution

  • Patrick Lambourne Its time to prioritise ordinary Londoners over corporate giants

  • Andrew Jaconelli Heathrow and surrounding areas are blighted by traffic jams noise and pollution levels that are not acceptable in the 21st century. Strategic thinking is needed so I'll through mine out there.
    Located approximately half way between London & Birmingham is the former RAF base Upper Heyford, the runway is said to be 3 miles long. I put forward a plan to bring the former airbase into operation as another airport.
    Reasons.
    1, Access from the M40 is acceptable on condition a new direct link access road to connect travel to and from Airport.
    2, Build a HS2 stop there.
    3, Build a new bus hub, and train station there.
    4. The economy will expand in the area significantly, also allowing people from the Midlands to benefit from being able to be employed there.
    5 , freight terminals can access railway.
    The list is endless!
