The case against expansion


The Liberal Democrats strongly oppose the expansion Heathrow, specifically a third runway.

The Lib Dems have a clear record of fighting against the expansion of Heathrow. For more almost two decades we have campaigned with local residents to stop the misery caused by the flight path.

Lib Dem MPs, Peers and activists will continue to fight the conservative Government’s plans for a third runaway.

It is estimated to cost the taxpayer approximately £5bn.

The impact on the environment: Air pollution levels have been breached for each of the last ten years at a selection of sites around Heathrow. (source: Data from London Air Quality Network Monitoring Statistics)
