Lydd Airport – What’s the Problem?

We have received an invitation from Lydd Airport managing director Jonathan Gordon to visit the site on the afternoon of their next Open evening – Thursday 18th February, specifically to give local businesses the opportunity to get a first-hand view of the environmental issues facing the airport’s planning application.

Jonathan tells us “There has been a tremendous amount of misinformation spread about the environmental issues here and I would urge anyone who has not visited the airport to come along and find out for themselves just what our investment proposals involve. By doing so they will see that our development plans are right for this airport and right for the people of Shepway.”

Channel Chamber will shortly be sending out invitations to all members who have already expressed an interest in the Airport’s development plans but if any other business wish to join us for a short visit starting at 3.30pm please contact Peter Hobbs on 01303 270022 or email:
