Stansted Airport application: Public speaking arrangements for Planning Committee

Uttlesford District Council has announced the public speaking arrangements ahead of a special Planning Committee meeting to consider matters relating to the Stansted Airport planning application

The Planning Committee will meet to consider the adequacy of the S106 Agreement as well as any potential new material considerations since the committee resolved to grant the application in November 2018. The committee report with officer recommendations will be published on 9 January.

The meeting will be spread across two days - Friday 17 January and Friday 24 January.  The first day (17 January, from 10am) will be dedicated as the formal public speaking part of the meeting, including representations from town and parish councils.

People who wish to speak must register, and they can do so between 8.30am on 10 January and midday on 16 January.

Each slot is for 4 minutes (5 minutes for town and parish councils) and these will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. People can only register to speak once, and cannot register multiple people in that request.

To register, email Please provide your contact details and state whether you support or object to the recommendations or would just like the opportunity to comment, and whether you are representing yourself or a group. The council will notify people of their allocated slot by 5pm on 16 January.

Following the public speaking on 17 January, the meeting will be adjourned until 11am on 24 January when the Planning Committee will consider the recommendations and the representations before determining whether to authorise the release of a decision notice formally approving the application.
