Stop Heathrow Expansion

No sooner had Heathrow's voluntary consultation on its North West runway closed than a series of Heathrow public relations events started under the heading of Listening Events. If the airport hopes to get its third runway, which is still looking doubtful, it has to show that it is communicating with people who would be affected.
Heathrow hopes residents around the airport will turn up and express their views on post-it notes, which they can then stick on a wall. Most residents are staying away and wonder why, after decades of trying to get another runway, Heathrow is still not listening to calls to scrap its plans for another runway.
A recent change has been the creation of a Heathrow Community Engagement Board (HCEB). The Airports Commission came up with the idea but, with a vote in Parliament expected this summer, any residents who are aware it even exists will be wondering whether it can make a difference. Some were less than impressed to discover that the HCEB is just the old Heathrow Airport Consultative Committee (HACC) with a change of name and a new Chair.
Stop Heathrow Expansion (SHE) is a residents-led campaign organisation opposing any expansion of Heathrow Airport, including the proposed third runway.
Established in 2014, SHE is campaigning for a better quality of life for all residents to be free from the threat of their homes being demolished or pollution harming their children.
SHE has 3 main aims:
1. Stop expansion at Heathrow – no more runways; no increase in flights beyond the current cap.
2. Reduce both air and noise pollution from Heathrow Airport and related road traffic.
3. Preserve our community life and heritage - and end the repeated threats.
