BRAAD

A serious plea for your help…….

THIS COULD BE YOUR FINAL CHANCE TO INFLUENCE THE COUNCIL’S VOTE ON THE FUTURE OF “YOUR” AIRPORT.

The London Borough of Bromley Councillors will be meeting on 25th March at the Civic Centre in Bromley at 7pm to discuss the results of the recent Council Yes/No Consultation. This Consultation revealed results that virtually mirrored those obtained by the airport previously, and the Independent poll carried out by Populus, in spite of a concerted campaign of lies and miss-information from BRAAD and the “No” camp. 31,500 peopke were in favour of the proposals with a total number of votes cast 41,711 – a clear majority in favour of 75.52%!

 (for those who are interested the full consultation report (all 213 pages), with indexes, and maps, can be seen here:http://www.bigginhillreunited.co.uk/consultationresults.pdf )

(please ignore the Council comment suggesting that piston engines aircraft will be prevented from using the early and late hours – that is not from the airport and Biggin do not agree with that as any aircraft, subject to agreeing to paying the special surcharge, will of course be accepted)

Many Councillors have indicated that they will not decide whether to vote Yes or No to the proposals until the day of the vote, and that they are not bound to take any notice of the actual public “vote”. It is clear that the way they vote will be influenced by the mood displayed by those there on the evening.

So – with BRAAD recognising that, and mobilising their supporters to be there on the night, it is really imperative we also attend in force to demonstrate the strength of feeling shown in the consultation is really there.

PLEASE therefore come to the meeting to show your support for the proposals – I really cannot express how serious this is – we have but one chance to take control of OUR airport’s future – are we actually prepared, after all our hard work, to allow the NIMBY’s in the No campaign to dictate how our future jobs pan out and businesses run. It really is worth just a couple of hours of your life to protect your future!

As BRAAD’s own campaign says (using the first world war Kitchener poster) – YOUR AIRPORT NEEDS YOU – don’t let us all down!  Join us at the Council meeting at 7pm on 25th March at the Civic Centre, Bromley.

Please let me know your intention to come and show your support – email john@bigginhillreunited.co.uk

If enough people respond, it may even be possible to help with some transport. Please don’t let us down – this really is the Last Chance Saloon!!

PLEASE HELP US TO PROTECT YOUR FUTURE.
