Ponds, the grass area to the west of Pond Lane, the grass
area to the south of the Thatchers pub and a strip of village
green opposite Amberton Cottage.
The 2003 project was only partially completed (young
trees, saplings and scrub removed). Neither the dredging,
clearing of pond and ditch, construction of the dipping
platform or provision of the information board were
completed. These will be included as objectives in the
current project. DP has purchased a large scale OS map,
and after extensive research at UDC has marked up all
areas and trees subject to preservation orders.
Frank Walsh has loaned us an extensive file on the 2003
project which provides excellent background and a
framework for the current project
Sarah Nicolas (UDC planning Department) says that to
extend the wildlife area we will require a report and survey
supporting the proposal from Essex Ecological Services
(EECOS) (Adrian Knowles) (part of Essex wildlife trust
(EWT)).
Action plan:
MS to update Adam Rochester with objectives and to seek
restoration and ongoing maintenance plan through EWT.
Arrange for an ecological survey through Adam, unless he
directs us elsewhere.
DP to prepare a very large-scale map of the Church Pond

Little Hallingbury out on goal difference only in the winners’ pool of this
year’s tournament.
The Dairy Farm, Lower Road, CM22 7PX
Having won the West Essex Primary School League title
MOT TEST CENTRE for a third consecutive time, the side was again invited to
compete in the 7-a-side event, staged at Mark Hall School

Collected and Delivered
Hatfield Heath was initially placed in Pool A, along with St
on arrangement Lukes, Little Parndon and Broadfields. They fared ex-
within a 5mile radius tremely well in the division, securing two 4-0 wins and a
0-0 draw to win the group.
OPENING HOURS
They then progressed to the winners’ pool in a round robin
Monday - Friday 8am- 5pm format, where they first came up against Church Langley,
Saturday 8am - 1pm who they defeated 2-0. They then dispatched Roydon with
a 1-0 scoreline, before battling to a goalless draw with St
Nicholas.

A key match followed as Hatfield Heath drew 1-1 with
Nazeing – a side who went on to win the competition by a
three-goal difference to Hatfield Heath.

Hatfield Heath ended the day unbeaten as they drew 0-0
with St Lukes, but with Nazeing scoring three more in the
overall pool, they were declared the winners.

need to face up to that reality and end the blight and uncertainty

which has dogged this community for so long. Our job now is

to ensure that the plans are consigned to the scrap heap once

and for all and we remain committed to this task for as long as

this takes.”

Stansted biggest loser in BAA passenger plunge

Passenger numbers at Stansted Airport for the last 12 months

fell by 10 per cent compared with the preceding 12 months.

The number of flights plunged by 12.3 per cent in the same

period. These were the lowest cumulative 12-month passenger

figure for four years. The airport suffered a catastrophic drop in

passengers of almost 19 per cent in May, the lowest since 2003,

and an even bigger drop in flights (ATMs) of more than 19 per

cent. The slump in passenger numbers and flights put Stansted

on track to fall below 20 million passengers for the whole of

2009 – down from its peak of 24.1 million in late 2008.

Stansted suffered the biggest losses among BAA’s seven UK

airports, which took an overall hit in passenger numbers of 7.3

per cent in May compared with May last year. Some 900,000

fewer travellers flew from BAA’s airports last month than the

previous May. Stansted’s cargo tonnage is also down – by over

16% year to date – compared to last year and could produce the

lowest figure for ten years.

‘Sell Stansted now’ demands Ryanair…

In the wake of BAA’s plunging passenger numbers, Ryanair

has called for the early sale of Stansted Airport. Stephen

Macnamara, head of communications at the airline, said the

collapse in passenger numbers so far this year proved that the

Competition Commission’s recommendation that the airport be

sold was the only way to protect London tourism and jobs. “…

we call for the fast-tracking of its sale in order to tackle the

airport’s plummeting traffic,” he said. He believed the

Government should follow the lead of the Belgian and Dutch

governments and scrap the ‘insane’ £10 tourist tax.

…while O’Leary sells five million shares

Michael O’Leary, Ryanair’s chief executive, has sold five

million shares in the airline, worth 18.75 million euros before

tax. The sale reduces his holding to just over 4 per cent, says

the Irish Times. Ryanair announced its first full-year loss in 20

SSE adviser addresses Commons 'Future of Aviation'
Inquiry
Aviation Economics Adviser Brian Ross, who provides advice
to Stop Stansted Expansion amongst others, gave evidence to
the House of Commons Transport Committee on Wednesday
afternoon, 17 June. His appearance was invited as part of a
strategic inquiry that focuses on economic, environmental and
infrastructure issues. Evidence cannot be published before the
Committee's full report appears but the session can be watched
on the Parliament website. Others appearing during the same
session included representatives of the Sustainable
Development Commission, WWF-UK and the Aviation
Environment Federation. The new Secretary of State for
Transport, Lord Adonis, gave evidence immediately afterwards
and the full session is likely to be broadcast on the BBC
Parliament channel on Sunday evening (21 June).
Airport staff and pilots in revolt
Unions are threatening to strike at BAA-owned airports this
summer after pay talks collapsed. Union chiefs had agreed that
staff should forgo a pay rise in the current downturn but then
discovered that BAA’s Spanish owner Ferrovial was planning
to pay shareholders a dividend (reported to be just £1.3m). A
spokesman for the Unite union told the Mirror that BAA “gave
us a sob story about having no money for modest pay rises …
we’ve been conned.” If the 4,000 low-paid BAA staff strike all
BAA’s seven airports could close, says the paper.
CAA opposes state intervention for BAA
The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has sided with BAA and
its debt providers in opposing a ’special administration regime’
to enable Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted to continue to
operate should BAA fail. Citing the experience of Eurotunnel,
the CAA said such a regime was unnecessary because owners
and creditors would maintain service continuity despite
‘significant financial distress’, reports the Telegraph. The CAA
said airport closure had significantly fewer consequences to the
public than disruption to water or electricity supplies and that
ministers’ step-in rights would expose airport owners and
creditors to additional risk. However SSE’s formal response to
the Department of Transport supports the Government’s
‘special administrative regime’ proposals, saying: “If the
Government believes that an airport is of strategic importance
to the UK economy then it follows that, in the event of that
airport getting into financial difficulty, the Government would
want to have the power to appoint a Special Administrator to
protect the national interest. The primary statutory duty of a

25

normal commercial administrator would be to creditors, not to
customers or to protect the national interest.”
Aviation’s ‘worst year’
Virgin boss Sir Richard Branson has warned that aviation is set
to suffer the worst year in its history and that a major US
airline will collapse in 2009, according to the Telegraph.
Meanwhile, Willie Walsh, chief executive of British Airways
has warned staff that the group is ‘in a fight for survival,”
reports the Financial Times.
BAA seeks views on noise
Stansted Airport has launched a 16-week public consultation on
aircraft noise. It is seeking views on its proposed Noise Action
Plan and will hold ‘noise briefings’ in local towns and villages
during August and September. The Noise Action Plan is
intended to show how the airport intends to mange the adverse
aircraft noise effects that were indicated by noise maps
compiled in 2006 for aircraft noise associated with Stansted
Airport. The consultation closes on 2 October 2009 and SSE
will shortly be issuing a guide to the issues involved and
recommendations for responding to the consultation.
Empty homes causing ‘deep concerns’
The number of empty and neglected homes bought up by BAA
in anticipation of a second runway being built, is causing deep
concern, reports the Dunmow Broadcast. Uttlesford district
councillor Susan Barker says the problem is having a negative
effect on the community. Takeley parish councillor Trevor
Allen says the number of empty houses is threatening to split
the community and putting pressure on local facilities such as
schools and shops. BAA claims that over 90 per cent of the
houses it owns are either occupied or soon will be

OFFICE OF FAIR TRADING ASKED TO “SAY GOOD BYE TO WAXING & SHAVING”
INVESTIGATE ALLEGED UNFAIR TRADING

PRACTICES AT STANSTED
Stop Stansted Expansion (SSE) has today (16 June 2009)
written to the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) asking it to
investigate allegations of unfair trading practices operating at
Stansted Airport in relation to its treatment of local taxi firms
and small accommodation establishments such as local B&Bs
and guest houses.
Over the years SSE has received a number of reports alleging
anti-competitive and/or unfair behaviour by BAA Stansted
towards these types of small local businesses and, with a view
to obtaining a better understanding of the position, SSE
carried out a questionnaire survey of local taxi firms and
B&B/guest houses within a 15 mile radius of the airport.
A total of 28 replies were received to the questionnaire survey
and, in writing to the OFT, SSE acknowledges that “Clearly
there is a need for caution when considering the results from
a sample of just 28 responses. However, the consistency of
the matters complained about suggests that some credence
should be attached to the complaints.”
The complaints from local taxi firms were mostly about
BAA's exclusive agreement with 'Chequer Cars' which
provides this one taxi firm with a dedicated pick-up area
directly outside the terminal building while all other taxi
operators are subject to restrictions and are forced to pick up
passengers from the short-stay car park and pay car parking
charges.
The main complaints from local B&Bs and guest houses were
against the accommodation booking desk at Stansted which
(like Chequer Cars) apparently pays BAA for an exclusive
franchise. The main complaints were:
• charging local B&Bs and guest houses excessive rates of
commission;
• giving preferential treatment to airport hotels because a
more expensive room rate provides a higher commission fee;
• wrongly advising people looking for low-cost
accommodation that the local B&Bs were fully booked and
that only expensive hotel rooms were available.
SSE Campaign Director Carol Barbone said: “There are
clearly some issues here which deserve to be investigated.
Local taxi firms and family-run B&Bs obviously do not feel
they are getting a fair crack of the whip from BAA at Stansted
and hopefully this is something which the Office of Fair
Trading will pursue on their behalf.”
