Welcome

We are a local group campaigning against plans to allow Heathrow to increase noise, pollution and traffic congestion in Hammersmith & Fulham.

 

Despite the vote on 25 June 2018 in Parliament the 3rd runway at Heathrow, now faces two large hurdles:

    • the legal challenge
    • the planning process.
Legal challenge
A judicial review is being brought by the boroughs of Wandsworth, Richmond,
Hillingdon, Windsor & Maidenhead and Hammersmith & Fulham, plus the Mayor of
London and Greenpeace. Other parties may join.
The case could be heard as early as this autumn; hearings could stretch well into 2019 with appeals to higher courts.
Arguments are likely to centre on air pollution, climate change, surface access and failures of process.
Our own borough are fully involving us. We will keep you in touch with developments.
Planning process
Heathrow’s planning application will be developed over the next year or so, and is unlikely to be submitted before 2020 at the earliest. There will be some consultations along the way and we will keep you informed about these.
Wider campaign

We are is well linked to the steering groups of the No 3rd Runway Coalition and HACAN. Just now there is no particular local action to be taken, but 3rd runway headlines in the future could act as a springboard for local events. The greatest need remains making local people aware of what may hit them if there is a 3rd runway; many residents are still blissfully ignorant of this. Perhaps we need an event simulating the likely noise environment with a 3rd runway.

No3rdRunway and HACAN undertake strategic work on positive alternatives to the 3rd
runway to influence politicians and others. Help may be needed with this research.

Remember History

And let’s remember history. In 2010 6 local authorities took the Government to court about the 3rd runway decision made by Government in 2003 and confirmed by them in 2009. The court decided that the 3rd runway could not go ahead.

You can find out more about what else has happened and what we have done on our news and events pages.

Anyone wanting to join the Management Committee to help us develop our initiatives and make them happen should please contact us.

Or you may just want to help with one of the projects without joining the Committee. We welcome any help and are particularly interested in anyone with expertise in communication, social media, publicity and PR, again, please contact us.

Best wishes

Christina & Victoria
