Uttlesford District Council is hosting three public speaking sessions before the set date to allow members of the public more opportunity to express their views on Stansted Airport’s planning application to increase passenger numbers.

The date for a special planning committee meeting to consider the planning application from London Stansted Airport - in which it seeks to raise its current cap on passenger numbers - has been set for Wednesday October 17.

Stansted Airport is currently permitted to serve 35 million passengers per year and is applying to increase that figure to 43 million passengers.

The committee meeting will start at 10am.

Ahead of the committee date, Uttlesford District Council will be hosting three public speaking sessions to allow members of the public more opportunity to express their views on the application directly to representatives of the planning committee.

These sessions, which will be in addition to the usual public speaking arrangements at planning committee, will take place on Tuesday October from 10am to 1pm, Wednesday October 10 from 2pm to 5pm and Wednesday October 10 from 6pm to 9pm.

Further details about the additional public speaking sessions and the arrangements for the special planning committee, including how to register to speak, will be issued shortly.

Registration to speak at either the planning committee or the additional public speaking sessions will not be accepted until the further details have been announced.

A resource page is available on the council website at www.uttlesford.gov.uk/airportapplication which provides access to a summary of the Stansted Airport planning application details and the key documents. The planning application reference is UTT/18/0460/FUL.
