Gatwick airport plans massive expansion - oppose them by 10 January!

5 January 2019

Gatwick Master Plan doc

Wealden Green Party has always opposed Gatwick's expansion plans - and we're opposing them again today. Over on our Campaigns page is a detailed guide to how to respond to Gatwick's latest outrageous plan (thanks to local campaign group GON). If you only have a minute, go there now and respond - we don't have long.

This is a long battle - Gatwick is determined and has deep pockets. But alongside local campaign groups such as GON and CAGNE we are holding Gatwick to account. We have to - our homes and our environment are at stake.

Every action makes a difference: our members have attended meetings of campaign groups, responded to every consultation, written to and emailed Gatwick, the government, ministers and Nus Ghani MP, logged endless noise complaints so Gatwick can't pretend no one cares. We've taken part in demonstrations at Gatwick and locally. We support our MEP, Keith Taylor, who has stood up to Gatwick all the way. And our members belong to local campaigh groups, adding their weight to their actions. Our voices - alongside many, many people across Wealden - are the only thing holding Gatwick back. Join us and make a difference!

Vote Georgia Taylor for Parliament - 12 Dec 2019

Voting Green and 'tactical' voting in Wealden

Voting LibDem or Labour won’t unseat Nus Ghani, no matter what they say.

Voting Green sends a strong message to the new government: Green voters demand significant change on climate and social justice.

Voting Green is a clear vote for remaining in Europe.

We encourage everyone to vote for the party that best represents their values. 

Why didn't the Greens stand down in Wealden?

A Unite to Remain candidate is only standing in constituencies where a Remain candidate has a good chance of beating a Leave candidate.  

The Unite to Remain strategy gives the Green Party significantly more chance of electing more Green MPs. 

In Wealden, the combined votes of all opposition parties won’t unseat Nus Ghani. 

Wealden Green Party is a successful party. We have increased our share of the vote in most recent elections and plan to do so again.
