Uttlesford District Council has set a new date to determine Stansted Airport’s planning application.

UDC’s planning committee was due to determine the planning application – which seeks to raise the current cap on the number of passengers the airport is permitted to serve from 35 million passengers per year to 43 million – at a meeting on October 17.

It has now been agreed to move this to Wednesday November 14.

Public speaking sessions will take place on Tuesday November 6 from 10am to 1pm, Wednesday November 7 from 2pm to 5pm and later the same day from 6pm to 9pm.

These sessions will commence with an introduction from the applicant about its proposals, and also accommodate time for Stop Stansted Expansion to present its views.

They will allow members of the public more opportunity to express their views on the application directly to representatives of the planning committee. The sessions are not official planning committee meetings - all elected committee members have been invited to attend and listen to the comments made.

A supplementary report for the committee, summarising the representations, will be prepared by officers on the matters raised during the public speaking.

Each public speaking session will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Each slot is for three minutes, mirroring planning committee rules. People can only register to speak once, and cannot register multiple people in that request.

People who had already registered to speak at the sessions that had been arranged for October 8 and 9 do not need to register again, but we will be contacted to check their availability on the new dates.

To register to speak at one of the additional public speaking sessions, email or call the council on 01799 510468.

The closing date to request a slot to speak is midday on Monday November 5.
