Enquiry

Please see below a statement made yesterday by Sir Roger Gale MP regarding Manston airport. I will be grateful if you can confirm the claim within the statement of conclusions drawn by one of your inspectors during the recent change of use application procedure.
"Given the Inspector's comments in July last year when rejecting change of use on four current buildings on Manston and his recognition in his summary of the importance of Manston of a potential force for economic and employment development as an airport in the current local plan (which is why, of course, the Leader of Thanet Council and the minority opposed to the airport wanted to change the plan from Airport to mixed use) it is hard to see that the RiverOak application will not be accepted for examination..."
