Council pleased with Court of Appeal decision
The Council has received confirmation that the Judicial Review on the Southampton Airport runway has been refused permission to appeal to the Court of Appeal and there can be no more challenges to the planning permission that was granted by Eastleigh Borough Council in April 2021.
The Court of Appeal refused, on all grounds, the application made by GOESA for permission to appeal the decision and concluded that none of the grounds of appeal had a real prospect of success and there was no other compelling reason for the appeal to be heard.
Council Leader Keith House, said, “This is good news to get this issue resolved and supports the decision made by the Council to permit Southampton International Airport Ltd’s application.”
He added, It’s important we were able to support the airport and its future, and also help to grow jobs for the economy in these tough times. We now look forward to working with Southampton Airport as they start work on their scheme.”
