Hampshire Live - Robert Edwards

The public consultation on plans to increase the number of flights and weekend flying at Farnborough  Airport began on Monday (November 13). It comes after Farnborough Airport Ltd submitted a planning application to Rushmoor Borough Council to increase the number of flights from 50,000 to 70,000 a year and double the number of weekend flights from 8,900 to 18,900, and to allow heavier aircraft to use the airport.

Residents who want to find out more details and to comment on the proposals should go to the council webpage. Printed copies of the documents are now available to view at the council offices in Farnborough, and Aldershot and Farnborough libraries.

The closing date for comments is midnight on Sunday, December 17 which is in line with statutory timescales. If this date is extended, this will be set out on the council’s website.
