Every local MP and MEP supported SSE’s stance in opposing a second runway at Stansted, as too did almost all the key county and district councils in the East of England region. The plans for a second Stansted runway have been shelved – at least for the time being – but if these plans were ever to         re-emerge, SSE would again seek to mobilise the widest possible coalition to oppose a second runway at Stansted.
