We’ve stopped Leed Bradford Airport’s expansion plan!

The airport has withdrawn its planning application which means the public inquiry has been cancelled and we have won this battle. But the fight isn't over yet. The airport’s owners have claimed that they can increase the number of day and night time flights even without their planning application being approved. We absolutely contest their claims. So we will have to continue the fight against this assault on public health and our climate. To do this, we still need high quality legal advice and we may need to take further legal action to stop any breach of the existing rules. That means we will continue to incur costs.


As you know, airport expansion is a national issue and we hope this victory will offer hope and encouragement to similar campaigns across the country. We will continue working with other campaigns in the UK as well as supporting legal moves to ensure the government takes its climate commitments seriously by preventing unrestricted aviation growth.
