Stansted Airport planning application

Plans to increase the passenger cap at Stansted Airport have been refused by Uttlesford District Council's Planning Committee at an extraordinary meeting today (24 January).

This comes after a Planning Committee meeting in November 2018 at which the committee resolved to grant approval of the application subject to the S106 Agreement.

The reasons for today's refusal were made in relation to noise, air quality and climate change, matters that the committee agreed were material planning changes since the approval was granted.

Audio recording

Unfortunately the broadcasting of today's meeting failed. Officers worked throughout the day, in liaison with the supplier, to identify and rectify the problem without success.

It has now been established that the back-up local recording of the meeting also failed, meaning an audio recording of the meeting will not be available on the council's website.

We sincerely apologise to those who had wanted to 'listen in' or 'listen again' to the meeting.
