Stop Heathrow Expansion
Thank you for coming to our website. Scroll down the page and you can get a quick overview of the latest issues, Facebook entries and tweets.
On Tuesday 5th June, the day after Transport Secretary Chris Grayling got a mauling in parliament over the rail timetable fiasco, he stepped into the political ring again to announce the next step towards a forthcoming fiasco - a third runway development at Heathrow.
Much of the media portrayed this as the government giving the runway the go-ahead but it is just another step - in our view it's a step towards killing off the project for good. With each exploration of the facts, the flaws become more visible.
Those MPs who take the trouble to explore the facts, rather than just rely on the government's information pack, must vote against it. If the majority approve the National Policy Statement, and therefore the runway, the government will have to face anti-runway campaign groups and local authorities in court.
A reminder that the creation of a new rail link from the West to Heathrow is not dependent on expansion. A consultation by Network Rail is taking place (11 May to 22 June) if you want to find out about the impacts and comment.

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.
