250,000 reasons to oppose a 3rd runway
It would mean another 250,000 flights a year. That is a terrifying prospect for people already bombarded by aircraft noise.
The third runway would be London’s 8th in total — above most equivalent cities across the world.
And a new runway will mean a new flight path. More noise for more people.
No wonder the protests have already started.
An independent Mori Poll shows that just 13.2% of Britons back a third runway at Heathrow: https://www.ipsos-mori.com/researchpublications/researcharchive/3606/Most-Britons-believe-airport-capacity-should-be-increased.aspx

Watch one Sipson resident’s plea for politicians to come to the villages to see where their decision will have most impact:
And there is serious opposition with the cabinet to a third runway. At least 5 cabinet misters are opposed to it.
People have joined HACAN at a faster rate since the Airports Commission recommended a 3rd runway than at any other time in our long history.
They know there are 250,000 good reasons oppose a third runway.
HACAN is not a direct action organisation but we will be campaigning hard to persuade David Cameron to keep his promise, ‘No ifs; no buts; there will be no third runway’ when he announces his decision in November.
Keep checking the website for details of campaigning events.
The obstacles to a 3rd runway remain enormous:
– Noise disturbing more people than any other airport in Europe
– Air Pollution levels hovering above the EU legal limits
– Thousands of people facing eviction from their homes
– Millions of pounds of public money required to upgrade the roads network
– And the prospect of the biggest environmental battle in Europe
Residents will not be quiet
