Raise funding for a legal challenge at LBA

Stop  Leeds Bradford Airport expansion!

Help us raise £30,000 for a legal challenge.

There are over 2,200 objectors to the planning application to expand Leeds Bradford Airport. Among the objectors were 100 academics from environmental disciplines at Leeds University as well as numerous politicians, residents and commeunity associations.

This was the wrong decision: wrong in law, wrong for our communities and wrong for our climate. The Council has chosen to put itself on thewrong side of history. However, the story is far from over… GALBA is mounting a legal challenge against the council’s decision and we urgently need to raise funds to pay for our barrister and other expert advisers. We need to raise £30,000.

Remember: Leeds Bradford Airport wants to increase its passenger numbers from 4 to 7 million per annum and extend flying hours into the night and early morning. That would mean the airport doubles its greenhouse gas emissions in the middle of a climate emergency. It would mean much more noise, air pollution and traffic congestion affecting thousands of people in our communities.
