Dear [Name of your MP],

I am writing as a constituent of [your constituency] to ask you to support the manifesto of the campaign group No Airport Expansion, which asks for there to be no further airport expansion across the UK.

The group is asking for a three-year moratorium on airport expansion for the following reasons:

  • To prevent climate change emissions from aviation to continue to grow unchecked
  • To allow time to assess whether the expansion of the aviation industry can be compatible with the UK’s legal commitment to reach net zero by 2050 
  • To allow time to assess the health and quality-of-life impacts of noise and air pollution for communities around airports and those under flight paths, and to develop measures to tackle it
  • To allow a clearer picture to emerge of the timescale and effectiveness of the government’s proposed solutions outlined in the Jet Zero strategy

[Add personal information about how aircraft noise and/or emissions affects you]

I hope you can support the manifesto, in order to limit runaway growth of the aviation industry and ensure a sustainable future for all.

Best wishes,
