Just checked - both links work OK. Don't know if I'm allowed to post text from a newspaper here, but if BRL OKs it, I'll post both articles. The gist was that RAF Cosford is to be expanded into a "general business" airport with associated maintenance facilities.
This idea has been around for a while, but a couple of days ago it was formally presented to Telford and Wrekin Council, who have adopted it. It will shortly be presented to Shrewsbury and Atcham Borough Council - their planning officers have recommended that the council vote in favour. Neither of these carry too much weight though when you consider that the planning authority is Bridgnorth District Council, who are decidedly anti-aviation in all its forms, from microlights to business airports. Also, the area comes within Shropshire County Council's patch, and as far as I know, they have not expressed an opinion.
Just to demonstrate the complexity of local politics, the area comes within the Wrekin parliamentary constituency. The MP is Peter Bradley (Labour). The majority of the constituency is the northern and eastern parts of the Telford new town, Shifnal and Albrighton are really an add-on that sits uneasily with the rest of the constituency. Given that Telford and Wrekin Council voted in favour of the development, I would predict that Peter Bradley would also tend to favour it. However, the boundary commission are shortly to start reviewing parliamentary boundaries in the area, and are widely believed to be going to recommend that Shifnal and Albrighton should be shifted into Ludlow constituency. The MP for Ludlow is Matthew Green (Lib Dem). I have no idea what his view on the matter is, but can find out, since I know him pretty well. I suggest that those who are interested in supporting the proposed development at Cosford should write to both these MPs and to Bridgnorth District Council.
