Third runway at Heathrow given the go ahead

Although the Government has given the green light for a new runway at Heathrow Airport

A second runway at Gatwick and a proposal for an expansion of an existing runway at Heathrow were both rejected.

Mr Sharma backtracked however and in August, the Labour MP wrote in his CITY A.M column: "Expansion won't just continue to provide the jobs that we now have, but it guarantees up to 40,000 new jobs and £35bn of economic growth in London alone".

Transport Secretary Chris Grayling called the decision "truly momentous" and said expansion would support commerce and jobs.

"We are now exploring the options for supporting growing demand and creating an integrated transport hub so we can play our full part in unlocking the potential of the Midlands Engine".

Britain yesterday gave Heathrow Airport the green light to build a new $22 billion runway, ending 25 years of indecision with the most ambitious option available to boost global trade links following the vote to leave the EU.

Newcastle Airport said they "welcomed" the decision to build a third runway at Heathrow. "There must be quick reassurances that as part of its Brexit strategy, the United Kingdom government will seek to ensure that the United Kingdom and European Union aviation market will remain closely integrated, with European Union and United Kingdom airlines continuing to enjoy free market access".

Ms Flint, who has represented the Don Valley constituency since 1997, adds that London gains 24 times the investment in infrastructure than places like the North East, some £5,500 per head, to just over £200. The scheme will now be taken forward in the form of a draft "national policy statement" for consultation next year. I would like to see one of the conditions of approval being that sufficient slots are reserved at the airport for regional connectivity with airports like Doncaster Sheffield (DSA).

After the controversial decision was announced, he told MPs in the Commons the decision was "catastrophic".

Gatwick chief executive Stewart Wingate said: "We are disappointed as we do not believe this is the right answer for Britain".

He also linked the move to his own airport's expansion, which was agreed in July.

It is unlikely that any new runway capacity would be operational before 2025.

The government said that it would propose a six-and-a-half-hour ban on scheduled night flights, and will make stringent night noise restrictions a requirement of expansion.
