Essex Chamber

Essex Chambers invites you to our new Harlow Horizon Networking event, taking place at the Park Inn by Radisson Harlow on the 13th of September!

Stansted Consultation with SELEP

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. The airport’s owners, Manchester Airports Group, have invested in improvements to the existing terminal, have planning consent to build a new arrivals building and are working hard to attract new airlines and routes to offer users even more. It is also the largest single site employer in the East of England providing over 12,000 jobs and contributing £1 billion annually to the UK economy.

All of this is done with a single runway that is not being used to its’ full capacity. Although there is much talk about a third runway at Heathrow Airport this will not be delivered until 2030 at the earliest and the Government has stated the need to “make best use” of existing capacity at other airports until it is built. Stansted’s potential importance to the future of UK aviation has now been recognised in the statement by the Transport Secretary on plans to develop a new UK Aviation Strategy made on the 21 July.

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 will not only be good for passengers by providing a greater choice of airlines and routes but will also 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 invite you to come along and find out more about these ambitious plans and give your thoughts on these proposals.

Speakers will include the Managing Director of London Stansted, Ken O’Toole and Christian Brodie, Chairman of SELEP (South East Local Enterprise Partnership)

Date: Wednesday 13th September 2017, 4:30pm-6:30pm
Venue: Park Inn by Radisson Harlow, Southern Way, Harlow, Essex CM18 7BA
Cost: £18 Member rate, £35 Non-Member rate (prices including VAT).
