Together these have over 2,000 members.


Our Aims

The members of our amenity groups are adversely affected by noise from Heathrow’s flight paths, particularly in the night period.

  • We seek an end to Heathrow night flights
  • We oppose any dilution of Heathrow runway alternation
  • We oppose new runways at Heathrow

No further runways are needed in the South-East of England. Capacity needs can be easily met through projected increased aircraft occupancy, and by reducing the number of international transfers at Heathrow which add no value to the UK Economy and in practice decrease the number of destinations served.

We nevertheless recognise the importance of air transport for London and the need to make provision for handling the forecast increase in air passenger numbers. We therefore seek to make a positive contribution to the development of policies for London airport capacity and connectivity.

Our Research

We have carried out extensive research into Heathrow, its impact on the community, and proposals for its expansion. You can read the results of this:

Community Engagement

We also engage with Heathrow in the Heathrow Community Noise Forum, set up in 2015 to keep community representatives and local authority stakeholders informed and seek their input in preparing for and consulting on future airspace modernisation.
