City Airport Consultation – latest

Posted on June 15, 2014

Newham Council is consulting yet again on City Airport’s expansion consultation.  They have sought more information from the airport mainly it seems about the impact of the construction process.  But the airport has also chosen off its own bat to rebut the New Economic Foundation report we commissioned about the economic and enviornmental advantages of closing City Airport on the basis that it was “clearly prepared to influence the outcome of the CADP applications”.  That is not true but it is satisfying that the Airport felt they had to do a lot of work to try and rebut it!

The closing date for reporting to this latest consultation is 10th July and the council is expected to consider the application at its planning committee on 23rd July.
