View The GreenPeace Airplot Certificate
Well here it is - your certificate of Beneficial Ownership of the Airplot, the strip of land on the site of the proposed 3rd runway which helped us to stop the expansion of Heathrow airport. It was an amazing campaign which mobilised a large cross-section of civil society in a united effort to tackle climate change and pollution, and you played a blinder for us, so please give yourself a huge pat on the back.
What happens next?
First, we'd like to invite you to the 3rd Runway victory party which will be held in Sipson village (now saved from demolition) at the end of August. The villagers are keen to celebrate with everyone who helped to protect their homes from the bulldozers, so you'd be very welcome. The exact date is still to be finalised, but we'll let you know in good time when the plans are confirmed.
As far as the campaign is concerned, we've won a great victory but with over 20 other airport expansion proposals across the country still to be decided, there remains a lot to do.
We're keeping an eye on the most imminent decisions, such as those at Bristol and Lydd, and putting pressure on the government to reject the expansion plans. We'll let you know as soon as there's anything you can do to help. In the meantime however, it would be great if you could email your MP, asking them to call on the new coalition government to make sure aviation and transport policy are brought properly into line with the climate change act.
