STOP Stansted Expansion is preparing for its third Community Conference on February 4.

More than 200 people are expected to the attend the event at the Stansted Hilton, which will see a variety of speakers express their views on BAA's plans for a second runway and the forthcoming public inquiry.

SSE campaign director Carol Barbone said: "The conference will be of interest to all who have concerns about BAA's plans for the airport and the devastating impact they would have, especially those who want to gear up for the battles of the coming year.

"The programme will cover progress and look forward to campaign and local council priorities, including the context for the ongoing fight.

"Council leaders and community representatives have already begun registering to attend, joining scores of campaign supporters including non-members of SSE who are playing an active role in their continued opposition to the expansion of Stansted."

Speakers will include Sir Alan Haselhurst MP and representatives from Uttlesford District Council, including council leader Mark Gayler, as well as members of SSE's executive committee.

Conservative and Independent councillors from UDC will also take part in question and answer sessions.

Tickets to the conference are priced at £5 and must be booked in advance.
