Philip Hammond to attend meeting in EG

There will be a meeting (organised and funded by EGAG) in EG on Friday 31/3 to outline the impact of Heathrow expansion on EG; Philip Hammond will be attending for Q & A. You will remember that PH previously promoted the ‘Gatwick’ option but is now in line with government thinking which has given Heathrow […]

EGAG meet with MP Philip Hammond

Briefly: 5 Englefield Action Group members plus Surrey Councillor Marisa Heath met with Philip Hammond in EG last night. He gave us over an hour and a half of his time during which we spoke about our concerns re his change of position; ensuring the ‘robust safeguards of the Davies report’; noise affecting the village; […]

Expansion receives the green light

On Tuesday we heard the news that we were expecting (although it didn’t make it any easier), when Heathrow expansion was given the go-ahead. As you will know that means an increase of 260,000 flights a year to 740,000 (incidentally, Heathrow has already applied for an increase to the current 480,000 legal cap to to […]

Time to take action

Over the last few years Englefield Green has found itself under ‘new’ flight paths as routes that have been used for years have nudged towards us** Should Heathrow expansion be given the green light the prospects for Englefield Green, in terms of further noise and air pollution (amongst other things), are dire. It was recently […]

‘No ifs, no buts….’

Over 100 residents attended the rally in a very windy EG yesterday to air their concerns and protest against Heathrow expansion. The crowd chanted David Cameron’s pre-2010 election promise of ‘No ifs, no buts, no 3rd runway.’ HACAN (who organised the Advan) reported that the turnout had been the largest over the 3 day tour. […]

Decision on 3rd runway at Heathrow

We are concerned that many EG residents are currently not fully aware of the implications of the third runway proposal for the village. The flight path maps (see here or copy and paste link at bottom of page) which have been produced by the Davies Commission as part of their recommendations, show how life in the village will […]
