'Confusion' prompts rejection of Cambridge airport plans

  • Comment

Plans for a new terminal at Cambridge Airport are on hold after South Cambridgeshire District Council rejected an outline planning application.

The development and conservation committee last week told airport owners Marshall Aerospace to carry out a full environmental report on the proposed project before resubmitting it for consideration. Councillor Jane Healy, chairwoman of the committee, said there had been serious confusion surrounding the project: 'There are local residents who believe the extension would put the airport on a par with Heathrow, ' she said.

A proper consultation would be impossible, she claimed, until all the facts were properly understood and in the public domain.

Marshall Aerospace has yet to appoint an architect to the project.
