Motion text

That this House believes that the proposal for a new airport at Cliffe in north Kent would be one of the most environmentally damaging infrastructure developments ever seen in the United Kingdom; notes that it would destroy sites designated as special protection area, Ramsar site, special area of conservation, site of special scientific interest, national nature reserve and environmentally sensitive area; further notes that it would have a damaging impact on local communities, destroying over 1,000 residential properties; believes that it would not attract sufficient funding from the private sector to cover its construction costs or attract carriers away from existing airports; urges the Government to reject the case for a second hub airport in the South East and to take a more sustainable view of aviation by managing demand; and therefore calls on the Government to reject the Cliffe option when it published its air transport White Paper.
