We have now heard from the Operations Director of Southampton Airport who has told Chamber that Eastleigh Borough Council’s planning officers have recommended that the proposed runway extension should be given planning permission subject to conditions. At the time of writing, we are unaware of the substance of these conditions.
This recommendation is a positive sign. The decision will be made this coming Thursday (25th) at a virtual meeting of the “Eastleigh Local Area Committee”.
Chamber was asked for and has submitted a three minute submission that will be read out at this meeting.
As we learn more towards the end of the week, we will be straight back to you.
