Stop Estuary Airport - Campaigning for our local environment

This website has been launched to campaign against the plans by the Mayor of London to build a huge airport in the Thames estuary...

The Mayor of London wants to build an international airport on a man made island off the Kent and Essex coast in the Thames Estuary.

A government consultation on airport capacity for the South East of England is due to start soon amid fears that a huge international hub airport could be built on or near the Thames Estuary.

The expected consultation follows widespread publicity about three proposed schemes – two in Medway and one off the Kent coast.

Medway Council and Kent County Council launched a campaign two years ago, with the backing of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB), to make sure a hub airport is not built here due to the massive impact it will have on our area and the environment.

And the campaign continues. A decade ago, we successfully fought off a similar scheme at Cliffe, on the Hoo Peninsula, thanks to overwhelming support from the public and you can help to ground the most recent proposals.

    Intrusive, incessant noise pollution, environmental pollution and a big waste of money.
