Latest on the Airport campaignYou wait for one legal action and then three come along at once…
That’s the situation SAEN now find themselves in with a Judicial Review Oral Hearing on 6th April, an Ecclesiastical court hearing on 3rd-5th May and a Public Inquiry into the closure of Eastwoodbury Lane starting on 10th May. After months of the Airport and Southend Council pretending it was all a done deal, the campaign is now stronger than ever and ready to deal a fatal blow to Stobart’s attempt to extend the runway at Southend Airport.
More details on the SAEN website.
Is Southend Council serious about CO2?
South East Essex Friends of the Earth is calling on Southend Borough Council to:
- Commit to carbon emissions cuts in our local area of at least 40 per cent by 2020 — and produce an action plan detail how it’s going to happen.
- Support the introduction of local carbon budgets for every council — that’s a budget limiting the carbon that each area can emit.
- Back our campaign for more money and less hassle for councils to do things like improve public transport, insulate more homes and install green energy.
