Carlisle Airport loses planning application as Southend progresses

CARLISLE AIRPORT is not to be developed as a scheduled operation and freight storage and distribution centre.  The airport owner, transport group Stobart, has had its planning approval rejected by the Court of Appeal after an application by local farmer Gordon Brown.  Judges found that the submission was unlawful, noting that the City Council should have conducted a full environmental impact assessment before approving the plan by Stobart Air.  There is no right of appeal although Stobart says it is still in discussion with the Council, who have supported the scheme.  Stobart is also the owner of Southend Airport where a major development is under way.
