Plans for a multi-million pound redevelopment of Carlisle Airport have taken a step forward after the City council granted planning permission this morning.
The Stobart Group say a new freight distribution centre and commercial airport would bring jobs and tourism to Cumbria.
Ryan Dollard reports:
Gordon Brown has been a long term objector to the Stobart airport plans.
He feels that the decision was inevitable but has not ruled out a judicial review:
The director of Carlisle Airport, Andy Judge, said he is very happy with the council's decision to approve the development plans:
Jane Meek from Carlisle City Council has backed the council's decision to approve the development plans for Carlisle Airport.
A multi-million pound redevelopment will now go ahead after Carlisle City Council granted approval.
The decision was due to be made last Friday but was delayed after a last minute legal submission by objectors.
