Answer for City Airport

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I remain committed to ensuring that every airport takes full and fair account of its environmental impacts, including noise and air quality, to safeguard the health and quality of life for all Londoners.

With respect to the specific application made by London City Airport, they have lodged an appeal against the decision issued by the London Borough of Newham to refuse planning permission in line with my direction of 26 March 2015.

As the appeal process is underway, it is not appropriate for me to comment further on this particular case.
