RiverOak Strategic Partners

As part of the process to re-determine RiverOak Strategic Partners’ Development Consent Order application to reopen Manston Airport, the Department for Transport has today (Friday 11 June) published a Statement of Matters, outlining the topics on which they would like further information on from RSP as the applicant, together with any other interested parties, as they are required to do by law.

The topics are:

  • The extent to which current policies inform the level of need
  • Whether need has been affected by changes since 9 July 2019
  • Effect of the sixth carbon budget
  • Any other matters since 9 July 2019 that interested parties consider are material

RSP welcomes publication of the Statement of Matters and their limited scope, and intends to submit a detailed response on the four points by the DfT’s deadline of 9 July.
