Newham Council has written to commentators on the recent controversial London City Airport planning application and revealed that they intend to recommend refusal.

‘What a racket’ say residents

The detailed proposal seeks to allow up to 9 million passengers per annum – currently limited to 6.5 million – arrivals and departures on Saturdays until 18.30 with up to 12 arrivals for a further hour during British Summer Time – currently allowed until 12.30 – along with modifications to daily, weekend and other limits on flights and minor design changes, including to the forecourt and airfield layout.

Lewisham Council published a letter detailing opposition to any expansion of the London City Airport following a public question at the full Council meeting held on Wednesday, 28th September 2022. Residents had lobbied about environmental concerns including air quality and noise.

The application will be considered by Newham Council’s Strategic Development Committee at their next meeting on 10th July 2023.

The meeting starts at 2.00pm and will be held partially in person in the Main Hall, Old Town Hall, Stratford, London E15 4BQ, and also virtually via ZOOM and broadcasted live via the Council website link.
