Plans to introduce tougher car parking restrictions in new developments in London, including making those best-served by public transport completely car-free, have been revealed in the mayor's new draft transport strategy.
A High Court judge is to review the decision to grant planning permission for a new heliport in Penzance.
Plans have been approved for a new 34,000 square metre arrivals building at Stansted Airport in Essex.
It looks like 2017 is going to be a turbulent year as decisions taken in 2016 come to fruition, but is there any certainty in nationally significant infrastructure projects (NSIPs) coming forwards?
This week's announcement that the government will support a third runway at Heathrow airport signals that, although there has been a slowdown in infrastructure projects, those that are coming forward are getting bigger.
Picture the scene. The Prime Minister has announced that a new flagship hub airport is to be built in north Kent. Flanked by transport secretary Chris Grayling, she walked across derelict land on the Isle of Grain in a scene reminiscent of the Thatcher 'walk in the wilderness' on Teesside some 30 years ago.
We can all see tactical political calculations in government pushing back the Heathrow runway expansion decision beyond the London mayoral elections in May.
