Date set for Lydd Airport Decision

After nearly 2 and half years after original plans were submitted, Shepway District Council have set a date to determine Lydd Airport's expansion plans.

SDC's full council meeting on Thursday, July 9 will decide the two applications currently submitted by LAA - one for a runway extension of 444m and the other for a new terminal building.

Lydd Airport managing director Cliff Spink warmly welcomed news that Shepway District Council has set a date for the long-awaited meeting to consider its planning applications.

By the 9th July it will be more than two years and six months since we submitted our planning applications to redevelop the airport.

“I am confident that we have put forward a compelling case for development at Lydd. At a time when our economy is stagnating and unemployment rates are

soaring, both nationally and locally in Shepway and the surrounding areas, our planned investment must be good news for local communities.
