How the Expansion Will Affect Romney Marsh
Lydd Airport Action Group (LAAG) believes Lydd Airport is not a suitable site for a regional airport. It is situated less than 3 miles from the Dungeness Nuclear Complex, less than 2 miles from the Lydd military range and approximately 8 miles from the Hythe military range. The airport is also surrounded by fragile natural habitats protected under European and UK laws and located under one of the main migratory bird routes in the South of England. The extended runway is only 600m from
the Greatstone primary school.
