Our current priorities

  • To ensure that the Government, local politicians, the media and others are constantly reminded that there is no justification for major expansion at Stansted.
  • To maintain pressure on Stansted Airport to minimise the day-to-day (and night-to-night) impact of its operations on the local community.
  • To work with other airport community groups and environmental NGOs, to continue to press for action to tackle the growing impact of aviation on climate change, for example by lobbying for a moratorium on airport expansion, legally binding limits on aviation greenhouse gas emissions and an end to the aviation industry’s blanket exemption from fuel duty and VAT.
  • To persuade Stansted Airport to sell back into private ownership the remainder of the local homes bought in connection with its earlier major expansion plans.

Campaigning to ensure Stansted Airport's authorised operations stay below harmful limits
