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.
