05 Sep Essex Chambers Announce Event To Discuss Stansted Airport Growth Plans
by Dan Bryans
Essex Chambers of Commerce have today announced an exciting event to come and learn about the planned growth and development of Stansted Airport which would benefit local businesses.
Stansted Airport is one of Essex’s greatest success stories and one of the UK’s fastest growing airports serving 25 million passengers a year, flying to over 190 destinations in 40 countries.
All of this is done with a single runway that is not being used to its’ full capacity.
Critics have argued that Stansted has the room to grow its’ use without the need to build a second runway and are looking to raise their cap on passenger numbers from 35 to 44.5 million passengers a year. These plans could be beneficial to the economy of Essex and the south east generally by helping create more jobs and apprenticeships.
Essex Chambers of Commerce in conjunction with London Stansted Airport and the South East Local Enterprise Partnership are hosting an event next week where locals could find out more about these ambitious plans and give your thoughts on these proposals.
Speakers will include Paul Willis, London Stansted Transformation Project Director and Chairman of SELEP Christian Brodie!
