For all of those awaiting a positive decision on the future of Manston Airport it has been a frustrating 24 hours. The bald fact is that there is, due to delays caused by the impact of Covid 19 on planning staff, still work to be done on the Inspector`s report upon which the Minister will base his decision.
We all have to stay positive and keep our minds focussed on getting Manston opened as an airport again. We’ve waited years for this. Keep the faith and believe in the Manston project. We do not just want a decision, we want the right decision and if that takes a little longer then so be it.
Sir Roger Gale MP
