Help Us Save Romney Marsh from Airport Expansion

Help us save Romney Marsh by supporting LAAG in its bid to overturn the government’s decision to approve Lydd Airport’s development.  This is the last opportunity to stop the large scale development of Lydd Airport, which is less than 3 miles (60 seconds flight time) from the Dungeness nuclear power complex.

                            Please donate to our Appeal Fund  

In April 2013 the government approved Lydd Airport’s planning application and soon after LAAG lodged its High Court Appeal to overturn the decision. The government rates the creation of 135 jobs by 2026 - which is less than the number created by a modest super market - over crucial environmental and nuclear safety issues.The Appeal will take place in 2014.

The large scale expansion of Lydd Airport will damage the unique natural habitats on Romney Marsh and urbanise this important rural area. The development is also dangerous.

The introduction of heavy aircraft such as the Boeing 737raises the probability of an aircraft accident at the Dungeness nuclear power complex leading to a serious radiological release to unacceptably high levels. The government has chosen to ignore this evidence.

The nuclear complex is less than three miles from Lydd Airport- 60 seconds flight time away.  If Lydd Airport’s development proceeds, no other regional airport in Europe and possibly the world will be as close to a nuclear power complex.

We need your help to stop this insane development
