Stansted Airport Response To G2 Public Inquiry Update

18 Jun 2009

"We note the Secretary of State's decision to delay the start of Stansted G2 public inquiry, and will proceed as and when the Government decides that it is right to do so. This announcement does not alter the fact that new runway capacity is urgently required if the United Kingdom is to preserve its global economic competitiveness, and the case for a second runway at Stansted remains a strong one.

“In the interests of local people, we intend to keep our home owner support scheme (HOSS) open and continue to promote our special cases scheme, which gives consideration to those outside the boundary of HOSS, who might have exceptional reasons for moving early."
