I would like to tell you about the Lydd Airport Action Group (LAAG) and to ask for your support. LAAG represents people who are opposed to the expansion of Lydd Airport. Plans recently unveiled by the airport's new management, show that they want to expand facilities to cater for 2 million passengers by 2011 and 6 million by 2021, and a formal planning application is expected soon. LAAG is opposed to any plans that involve the expansion of the runway as this brings large aircraft into the area and creates unacceptably high levels of noise and air pollution, degrading the living conditions of local residents and harming the surrounding, fragile, nationally and internationally important ecological habitats of Romney Marsh. We would ask the help of those who live on and around Romney Marsh. I do hope you will help us by undertaking all of these. Having a large airport on our doorstep will cause us harm in so many ways and we need to all work together to ensure it does not happen. Romney Marsh may never be the same again! thanks Peter Faulkner on behalf of LAAG
