Manston Airport

I support the application because I believe that keeping Manston as an aviation hub will bring with it both investment in Thanet and the opportunity for work in an area which has limited opportunity. There is also the obvious reason that Manston is already there and has been an airfield for many years. Greater airfield capacity is needed in the south of England and the expansion of existing airfields like Heathrow and Gatwick can not be completed without the loss of many homes and villages in their surrounding areas.
