| Press Release - 10 March 2008
DIARY DATE and PHOTOCALL NOTICE for Tuesday 11 March 2008, 12 noon - 1pm
RESPONSE TO BAA'S PLANNING APPLICATION FOR A SECOND RUNWAY AT STANSTED AIRPORT
Stop Stansted Expansion (SSE) spokesmen will be joined by members of the local community outside The Three Horseshoes public house, Molehill Green (by Stansted Airport - see directions below) on Tuesday 11 March between 12noon and 1.00pm to comment on the application for a second runway whose details are due to be announced by BAA in a press briefing earlier that morning.
BAA's proposals would make Stansted bigger than Heathrow today, not only in terms of passenger numbers and flight movements but also surface area.
SSE Chairman Peter Sanders and Campaign Director Carol Barbone will both be available for interview. Media needing comment, interviews or pictures outside the core photocall period should contact Carol Barbone (see below).
To reach the Three Horseshoes, Molehill Green, CM22 6PQ, from the M11, turn right at the last roundabout (Coopers End) before the airport terminal, then immediately turn left at the mini roundabout. Follow the road for about a mile into Molehill Green and turn right at the green itself. The pub is on the left.
