Uncertainty lifted from Lydd airport

As one door closes, another one opens. The day after Manston Airport ceased to be an operational airfield, the High Court has agreed to allow the extension of the runway at London Ashford Airport – or Lydd airport to the vast majority of locals.

Opponents to last year’s decision by Eric Pickles, Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, to grant Lydd airport permission to extend its runway and build a new terminal to support 500,000 passengers per annum have lost their battle. 

The loss of the Lydd Airport Action Group (LAAG) appeal under Section 288 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 with the High Court, means the owners can now draw a line under the nine-month delay and get to work on the proposed £25m expansion.
