The mayor of Tees Valley has announced a deal to buy Durham Tees Valley Airport from a developer to prevent outline plans for 350 homes going ahead and to 'make the airport great again'.
Plans have been approved for the expansion of Stansted Airport in Essex, in line with a recommendation from planners who concluded that there would be 'negligible' negative impacts arising from the proposals.
Gatwick Airport has today revealed plans that consider seeking a development consent order (DCO) to bring its standby runway into use to accommodate long-term growth.
Headlines earlier this month such as 'Heathrow third runway gets go-ahead from Chris Grayling' (Guardian) and 'Heathrow expansion gets green light from government as transport secretary Chris Grayling hails "historic moment"' (City AM) may have given you the impression that construction was now able to start on the new runway.
The government has taken an important step by publishing its airports national policy statement (NPS), supporting the construction of a third runway at Heathrow.
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.
