Deadline for submissions – 9th July – for Transport Sec of State re-determination of Manston DCO

RiverOak Strategic Partners (RSP) have been trying for a long time to turn Manston back into a functioning freight airport.  The development has to go through the DCO process.  In July 2020, DfT Sec of State Grant Shapps, decided to ignore the Planning Inspectorate’s advice, and allow the DCO.

A Development Consent Order granting approval for an air freight hub at Manston airport was quashed in February with a new decision now needing to be issued after a re-examination of the Planning Inspectorate evidence. The action came as the result of a Judicial Review challenge to the decision, launched by Ramsgate resident Jenny Dawes last year, which was to have been heard in the High Court. The substantive hearing was due to look at whether the Government followed correct procedure in reaching the decision to approve the DCO for airport landowners RiverOak Strategic Partners. But, last December the Department of Transport acknowledged that the decision approval letter issued from the Minister of State did not contain enough detail about w
