ELF Community Event – Regional Airport Expansion and how communities can respond – 28th November 2019 at 39 Essex, London

By Emma Montlake

ELF is delighted to be partnering with Stephen Tromans QC and Richard Wald of 39 Essex Chambers to deliver a public community event looking at assisting those communities facing regional airport expansion. With national policy in the form of the Airport’s National Policy Statement https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/airports-national-policy-statement driving the expansion of our regional airports, how do effected communities respond? With emissions from tourist air travel set to increase exponentially, what can we do to limit these impacts?

Come and listen to those who have experienced these threats and to the professionals who have assisted those communities. Come and share ways of working with other groups.

Chaired by Richard Wald, speakers confirmed are:-

Rajesh Alagh – Borough Solicitor, London Borough of Hillingdon

Brian Ross – Stop Stansted Expansion

Stephen Tromans QC – Air Quality

Jason and Samara Jones – Hall – Manston Airport Development Consent Order Examination
