Our current priorities


  • To ensure that the Government, local politicians, the media and others are constantly reminded that there is no justification for major expansion at Stansted.
  • To persuade Stansted Airport to release some 270 local homes, bought in connection with its earlier major expansion plans, back into private ownership.
  • To maintain pressure on Stansted Airport to minimise the day-to-day (and night-to-night) impact of its operations on the local community.
  • Working with other airport community groups and environmental NGOs, to continue to press for action to tackle the growing impact of aviation on climate change, for example by lobbying for an end to the aviation industry’s blanket exemption from fuel duty and VAT.
