"Create new super airport
or double the size of Heathrow"

A report published in the Evening Standard this week suggests that plans are being considered to build a major new airport at Haddenham. If this proves to be the case, the villages of Chearsley and Long Crendon would have to be largely removed, according to Aviation Week.

Some industry experts have already voiced surprise that such an option is being considered as a serious alternative to expanding Heathrow, over which there is considerable opposition.

Needless to say, Haddenham.net will continue to monitor this story closely and update local residents as soon as there is anything significant to report.
