A mature, friendly, caring, experienced SSE RESPONSE TO AIRPORT COMMISSION
housekeeper/qualified carer FINAL REPORT 1st July 2015

(CRB checked) is available to help/assist you. This morning (1 July 2015), the Airports Commission,
I can help you in all aspects of domestic duties ie:- led by Sir Howard Davies, published its Final Report
after almost three years of independent analysis and
Housework • Shopping Laundry • Light gardening investigation.
Days out/social events • Hospital appointments. It is now for the Government to consider the
NVQ Qualified carer also available for Commission’s recommendations, and it could be as late

Commission believes that there may be sufficient
Melanie 01277 899 428 or 07879 427 953 demand to justify one other additional runway in the UK
by 2050. However, the Commission emphasises that this
15074 July 15 would also need to be justified on economic and
environmental and that no decisions should be taken
15037 Jan 2016 until the impacts of the new Heathrow runway have
been independently evaluated.
Whilst Stop Stansted Expansion (SSE) is obviously
relieved that the Commission has not recommended an
extra runway at Stansted, it has never been part of SSE’s
policy to seek to transfer the problems associated with
major airport expansion onto the doorsteps of the
communities living around other airports.
In SSE’s view the need for additional runways in the
UK has been greatly exaggerated by the aviation
industry. Business travel has been declining for 15 years
and now accounts for less than a sixth of all
international travel from UK airports. Moreover, the
total number of flights (business and leisure) from UK
airports has grown less than 1 per cent over the past 15
If additional runway capacity is provided in the South
East it will stifle the growth prospects for airports
elsewhere in the UK. In addition it will make it virtually
impossible for the UK to meet its climate change targets.
It therefore seems inevitable that there will be a series of
legal challenges to the Commission’s recommendations.
So far as Stansted is concerned, the Commission simply
states that:
“…there may be a case for reviewing the [35 mppa]
planning cap if and when the airport moves closer to full
capacity. Its forecasts indicate that this would not occur
until at least the 2030s”.
This is in line with what the Commission said in its
Interim Report and it will, of course, be dependent upon
demand. TShtaendseteeddscuorrfetnhtelySctagterfsrofmor 12814.50 million
passengers per annum (mppa) which is exactly the same
throughput as 10 years ago and so it is clear that there is
currently no case for raising the existing planning cap of
35 mppa.

SSE Chairman Peter Sanders said: "Ten years ago Do you think you could make

Coaching Letter In July 2015 Village Magazine

Every Tuesday on the Heath Hi Bruno
From Tuesday 5th May, 6 - I thought I would make a comment on the letter
from Pat Curran regarding the Heath looking like an
7:30pm Entrenched Battlefield.
I think the posts and trenches are the best ascetic and
15062 March 2016 environmental solution to the problem we encounter
at regular intervals of travellers camping on the
Heath. Everyone complains about the mess they
leave behind and the cost of clearing up, yet when
an environmentally friendly solution is found
residents still complain. You can't have it both
Access is still available for everyone to enjoy the
Heath and likening it to an Entrenched Battlefield is
harsh. The posts didn't seem to cause any problems
during the festival, which incidentally was brilliant
and if they solve the problem of illegal camp sites
I'm all for them.
