Stop Heathrow Expansion
Thank you for coming to the official SHE website. Scroll down the page and you can get a quick overview of the latest issues, Facebook entries and tweets.
Residents living in the Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) area for the proposed third runway have been receiving letters and questionnaires, yet again, asking for personal and property details (see Facebook entry below). Many of these people have already told Heathrow that they don’t want to give the airport their information so this sounds like harassment.
Not only that, the airport intends to share much of the information it receives with “trusted third parties” and will later publish it in a Book of Reference for all to see. Don’t be bullied by Heathrow - YOU DO NOT HAVE TO COMPLETE THESE QUESTIONNAIRES.
A third runway is not a done deal. The airport says it wants to update information but this is a pathetic excuse when the runway may never be built. This badgering is set to continue, with the next target area being the wider compensation zone. Letters will then go to those further afield who are affected by flightpath noise.
As for the legal challenges, which were allowed to proceed on 4th October, work is going on behind the scenes to meet paperwork deadlines set by the judge. Another hearing will take place on 15th January, with the final hearing running for up to 10 days starting on 11th March 2019. Please put the dates in your diaries as we are keen to ensure the public is involved.
We’d love everyone to sign up to receive updates and show support for our campaign. You can go further and pledge some practical help - for example there is the “700 More” Group, which will be taking part in legal events to raise awareness of expansion issues. The “700 More” refers to number of extra daily flights that would be generated by a third runway if it is ever built.
As always, be reassured that the information you give us is kept secure and is never shared. We also promise to respect your inbox; we want to keep in touch but never swamp you.
A THIRD RUNWAY AT HEATHROW MUST NEVER BE BUILT.
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.
