  1. I was wondering if you had made an assessment of the impact on Stanwell Moor and its wildlife of the proposed 3rd runway for Heathrow detailed in plans submitted to the Airports Commission? Damian O'Doherty, University of Manchester

    1. Hi Damian, I have not made a detailed assessment, however I will shortly be publishing a post summarising some of the impacts the proposed south-west option will almost certainly have on the wildlife found on both Staines and Stanwell Moors.

  2. Thanks Lee, that would be really helpful. I think many people might be persuaded that those things that cannot be calculated in terms of financial cost-benefit analysis might provide ways of thinking about alternative ways of living that challenge the current orthodoxy. Your skills with pictures and words might help people reflect on the potential losses that come with airport expansion. Damian.
