Kentish Express Ashford & District - - OPINION -

AC­TION groups and anti-air­port cam­paign­ers have wel­comed the re­sults of the pub­lic meet­ings. Great­stone res­i­dent and ac­tion group mem­ber Dick Ma­tra, of Dunes Road, said: “The over­whelm­ing sup­port we have re­ceived for the ref­er­en­dums about Lydd Air­port’s ex­pan­sion plans in­di­cates the strength of feel­ing among lo­cal peo­ple about the air­port. I be­lieve a ref­er­en­dum is the most demo­cratic way in which to mea­sure pub­lic opin­ion and I strongly urge all res­i­dents to vote in the forth­com­ing polls. This is a highly im­por­tant plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tion as Lydd Air­port’s ex­pan­sion will have a ma­jor ad­verse im­pact.”
