London Southend Airport application approved by Southend DC

Southend Development Control committee today approved the runway extension. After a thorough look at a very comprensive and objective report  and lots of questions the DC  committee voted 14 – 3 to approve. It will now be considered by the Minister and he will either endorse the decision or send it to a public enquiry. The decision was supported by Conservative, Labour, Liberal Democrat and Independent Councillors and the 3 that opposed were all Liberal Democrats.
