Yay! No Estuary Airport!

At last!!! Airports Commission rules out a Thames Estuary Airport

September 2nd 2014 and at last common sense prevails; the Inner Thames estuary airport proposal has NOT been shortlisted and our wildlife and communities can breathe a sigh of relief… for the time being…

…because the Mayor of London has ignored the vast weight of evidence submitted to Sir Howard Davies and his team against an estuary airport and included this dastardly idea in his draft London Infrastructure Plan 2050 – needless to say Friends of the North Kent Marshes have submitted evidence to and objected to this plan.

The Mayor is standing in next May’s General Election as a prospective parliamentary candidate for Uxbridge and Ruislip however, Johnson said he remained in favour of a new, four-runway airport in the Thames estuary.

So hold on to your hats chaps we could be in be for a bumpy ride…..
