Wednesday 8 (approx. 18:30) - Thursday 9 July (21:30): Proposed strike action is likely to cause severe disruption on London Underground services. Docklands Light Railway (DLR) services will not be affected and London City Airport station will be open. London Overground and TfL rail services are also set to run as per usual but are likely to be busier than normal. All passengers are advised to check their journey before they travel and allow additional time to get to their destination. For more information please click here.
The planning application proposed an increase in flight movements to 120,000 per annum from that year’s level of 80,000 (70,000 in 2011).
Following detailed consideration of the application and associated documents, the London Borough of Newham, at its Development Control Committee meeting held on 8 July 2009, granted planning permission for this application.
