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.
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.
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.
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.
