Newcastle Green Party oppose Newcastle Airport Expansion

While the Swedish invent the word 'flight-shame' (flygskam) and see reductions in domestic flying, here in the UK our local and national governments support airport expansion at Heathrow and regionally - So much for declaring a climate emergency!

We opposed this 'vision' for expansion in the last round of consultation and will continue to do so. A high proportion of flights from Newcastle are just to London - we need reliable, affordable train travel instead of more planes adding to climate breakdown.
