Manston Airport 2018 Consultation

RiverOak Strategic Partners (‘RiverOak’) is proposing to reopen Manston Airport as a vibrant air freight hub with associated business aviation and passenger services, creating almost 30,000 jobs by the airport’s 20th year of operation.

We are now undertaking a second statutory consultation on our proposals, before making an application to the Secretary of State for Transport for a Development Consent Order. This consultation will fulfil a number of requirements set out in the Planning Act 2008 and will allow the public and all stakeholders an additional opportunity to comment upon our proposals, which have undergone further development.

We are also taking the opportunity to update our environmental assessment in line with the latest EU Directive, in respect of which we will also welcome comments.

The consultation documents include details of:

• a proposed noise mitigation plan – namely the specific commitments we propose to make to minimise aircraft noise impacts;
• the new areas of environmental assessment and where these can be found in the updated preliminary environmental information; and
• the details of where the plans have become more developed since the consultation in June/July 2017.

Responses will be particularly sought on all these matters, but previous responses will continue to be considered and new responses can be made on any aspect of the project. RiverOak also gives advance notice now that further consultation events will be held later in 2018 as part of the air space change proposal that it will be submitting to the CAA.

The consultation runs from Friday 12 January 2018 to Friday 16 February 2018 and we would like to hear your views.
