Simon Randle and Marc Samuels  of 4-5 Gray’s Inn Square have been instructed by the London Borough of Newham in a high profile planning appeal relating to the expansion of London City Airport. Mayor of London Boris Johnson has called-in the proposals for the expansion, which will be subject to a lengthy inquiry.

In what has been described as one of the most significant UK infrastructure projects of recent decades, London City Airport hopes to build additional aircraft infrastructure and passenger facilities, including new taxiways to permit larger aircraft and more car parking spaces, as well as provide an superior design and facia to the airport.

Randle and Samuels will represent Newham throughout the inquiry and will lend particular expertise in relation to the local authority’s case as to its decision making and the airport’s significant investment in the area.
