Airport Expansion Given The OK For Takeoff
The government has approved plans for a runway extension at Southend Airport in Essex.
Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government John Denham claimed the right to a final say on the extension earlier this year.
He could have called for a public inquiry on the decision made by Southend Borough Council planners.
But he has now told the council he is happy for the council to progress with the plans.
