Story

www.galba.uk Stop Leeds Bradford Airport expansion!

Help us raise funds for a legal challenge

On 11 February, Leeds City Council approved Leeds Bradford Airport’s expansion plans. 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 the wrong side of history. However this 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 year and extend flying hours into the night and early morning. That would mean the airport doubles its greenhouse gas emissions in the middle of the climate emergency. And it would mean much more noise, air pollution and traffic congestion affecting thousands of people in our communities.

Local campaigns stopped expansion of Bristol and Stansted airports - we will do the same! Please make a donation today! All contributions, big or small, will help. You can donate by clicking on the Give Now button on this page. Thank you.

We say yes! Yes to a safer, quieter, cleaner and greener future.

You can find out why we oppose expansion and how to join GALBA on our website: www.galba.uk (edited)

    Dear Supporters, As you can see, Galba has reached 45% of its target on Just Giving. Over the past weekend we had a large number of direct donors and we are very pleased to report that we have reached our initial target of £30,000. We are expecting a lengthy planning inquiry or judicial review proceedings. Either way, we need to pay our legal team and expert witnesses. We wish to say a huge “thank you” to all those who have given money. For the time being we will continue to ask for contributions towards a stretch target of £45k.

    I wish LCC had taken their climate emergency seriously so I could have used this money for another worthy cause!
