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.
August is traditionally a holiday month but on the Stop Heathrow Expansion campaign the work behind the scenes continues. A third runway is NOT a done deal.
Just before Parliament took its summer break, a majority of MPs ignored the evidence against a third runway and voted for the planning process for the runway to continue. This gave objectors to the proposal outlined in the Airports National Policy Statement six weeks to launch a legal challenge. This has been done and one of those submitting papers to the court is a group that includes local authorities, Greenpeace and the London Mayor.
Residents' best interests have been at the heart of the decision to go to court. Lives are being shortened by toxic pollution and that is one of the facts that cannot be ignored - even if there are MPs in some constituencies who don't care about the long-term negative impacts of this monstrous proposal.

This really is an important period in our fight against the runway. We would love as many people as possible to work with us to stop the proposals once and for all.
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.
