We are a local group campaigning against plans to allow Heathrow to increase noise, pollution and traffic congestion in Hammersmith & Fulham.
We plan to run information stalls in the Lyric Square (map, opens on separate page) on Saturday 1st April and Saturday 13th May from 11am to 2pm, in time for the end of the current Government consultation on a 3rd runway at Heathrow (25th May). We aim to raise the low levels of awareness about what will hit residents if the third runway goes ahead.
Please make your views known and respond to the consultation on Heathrow expansion.
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.

We are a group of residents in the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham who are concerned about noise, pollution and traffic caused by Heathrow. We oppose any expansion.
If there were expansion, it’s likely there would be new flightpaths over both Hammersmith and Shepherds Bush. We wrote to Heathrow to ask them to mount demonstration flights over Hammersmith and Shepherds Bush in order for residents to experience the noise. Heathrow replied but didn’t answer the question. They referred us to the Department of Transport … to whom we shall be writing with the same request. We will keep you posted.
Previously some of us served on the Hammersmith & Fulham Commission on Airport Expansion and submitted a detailed submission on the effect that Heathrow expansion would have on residents. We concluded that the overall affect would be adverse, particularly as regards noise, traffic congestion and air pollution.
We have enter a discussion period. Now is the time to ensure our voices are heard. Read the local Air Commission’s letter of 31st August 2016 to the Prime Minister.
