Will 2,500 houses be built at Manston?

The new owners of the former Manston airport site told ITV Meridian today they are about to submit a 1000 page planning application to the council.

We know developers Stone Hill Park have grand plans for the land - that ceased being used as an airport two years ago.

They want to build 2500 new homes, a national hi-tech base for precision engineering companies, and state of the art sports facilities.

Today the billion pound project came a step closer, as John Ryall reports.
