Plans have been announced to secure the future of Rochester Airport, which could create up to 1,000 jobs.
A new all weather runway will be built as part of a new scheme to revamp the site.
Medway Council says there are no plans for commercial flights but the airport will continue with a mixture of leisure helicopter and air taxi use.
