We were pleased to see that Plymouth City Council adopted a number of the modifications we proposed to the first draft of Part 1 of the Plymouth Plan. This included protection of the airport airspace against incompatible development.
Part 1 of the Plymouth Plan sets out the main strategy for development in the city until 2031. Speculation that the airport might be redeveloped for housing failed to recognise that there are other locations in and around the city that can serve the need for new homes, but there is only one location where an airport can be located and that is the present site.
Part 2 of the Plymouth Plan has been issued in draft form and is open for the collection of views until January 2016. To have your say in Part 2 visit the Plymouth Plan website.
