BAA has been consulting on the proposed expansion of Stansted Airport to increase the capacity of the existing runway from the currently permitted 25 million passengers per annum (mppa) to 35mppa and also on the related 'master plan'.

This consultation ran until 31 October 2005 and was a precursor to the submission of a formal planning application for expanding the use of the existing runway which BAA says it expects to make in Spring 2006.

This so-called consultation was the first step in a plan that would see a DOUBLING of traffic on the existing runway. That could eventually lead to a SECOND RUNWAY, making Stansted bigger than the world's largest airport.

We urged you as a minimum to write to your MP with copies to your local councillors and BAA.
