2nd January 2015

Positive news received at the start of the New Year! Links to all ten submissions are included below.

THE House of Commons Transport Select Committee will hold an oral evidence session on Monday 2nd February to examine the future of Manston airport.

The session, which will take place at 4.00pm, forms part of an inquiry into smaller airports launched in July.

In total, the committee received ten submissions of written evidence from parties including Thanet council, Kent County Council and the Supporters of Manston Airport.

RiverOak Investments, the American firm interested in becoming Thanet council’s indemnity partner for a potential compulsory purchase of the site, also submitted written evidence.

Select committees collect written and oral evidence during inquires, before reporting findings to the Commons. The information will also be published online.

The government then has 60 days to reply to the committee’s recommendations.     From the Thanet Gazette
