AIRPORT: HEATHROW ON YOUR DOORSTEP: A Blight on Rural England; AIRPORT PLANS
A GOVERNMENT roadshow came to Warwickshire this week to tell people why transport chiefs are considering a huge new airport between Coventry and Rugby. In response, the Evening Telegraph invited PETER LANGLEY, regional chairman of the Council for the Protection of Rural England, to outline his views on the plan.
WITH a month left of the government's consultation period on airports, it's time to take stock.
If this was solely a Midlands decision, the Rugby Airport proposal would already be a dead duck. I know of no local authority or regional organisation which has come out in favour: even the local chamber of commerce overwhelmingly rejected it.
