Bishops Stortford Independent - Sinead Corr
Stansted Airport has won its mammoth planning battle against Uttlesford District Council and secured permission for up to 43 million passengers a year.
On Wednesday (May 26), planning inquiry inspectors who heard evidence from Stansted operator Manchester Airports Group (MAG) and planning authority UDC over three months at the start of the year have granted MAG's appeal and awarded it full costs.
Stansted Airport bosses will now submit a demand to UDC. If an agreement cannot be reached, the Senior Courts Costs Office will intervene.
