The masterplan seems a case of "we are going ahead with plans to build 400 houses & tough! if you don't approve"
Being brutally realistic, what would serve the region best, an under utilised and loss making airfield or 400 houses to help ease the chronic shortage of housing in the UK?

Leaving aside for the moment the imperative of how much the land owner (Peel) could make our of the sale of the land for it's shareholders!

Plenty of places to build houses in the North East - not many places to connect into significant export markets.

But what will best serve the region doesn't really come into the equation.

Strange 90m turning up not long before the next election. Road built by Christmas then.

A large amount of money has just been spent on a new 3ft fence, wooden poles with two wires and a barbed wire top ringing the airfields outer edges.

....The combined investment package could create up to 1,000 jobs, up to 1,500 additional training places and allow 1,500 homes to be built..........
Well thats it, & we know where many of these will be built & we may even have a nice new access road thrown in...

Cllr Phil Dennis asked: Is there a date at which the company would cut its losses?

Mr Nears replied: I dont know. Im not an accountant."
Comical! Clearly he wouldn't give a date, but should be able to come up with something better than that

The public comments below the news article explain how it looks to most people.
Yeah but how it looks and how it is are two different things thankfully.

Too right there Robert over the years dear Doris has stopped cargo flights, holiday flights and she and her NIMBYs wrecked the original South side development because she thought there were going to be numerous 747s every day.

Presume the locals won't vote her out in the next elections!

You could almost say Doris is responsible for Peel owning the airport.

Nicely put EGHQ

Does anyone know how much Peel are being given to build the new road and drain systems on the south side of DTV Airport? The total figure for the gov money was 90m but how much are Peel being gifted?
This sounds a familiar story of Peel dealing with local councils, and house building plans Salfordonline News

SALFORD COUNCILLORS CALL IN PEEL HOLDINGS GREEN FIELD SELL OFF IN WALKDEN - Salford Star - with attitude & love xxx
Peel are used tp getting what they want, and know how to work the system for free road money.

DTV is just a small piece of their UK master building plan. They have no interest in keeping DTV open. They are property developers.
Look at the broader picture DTVAirport.

One may appreciate that "possibly" due to your position then you are not in a position to breach confidences and to an extent I am sure that most posting on this forum accept that.
HOWEVER you continue to utter numerous innuendos that you are never able to back up even in retrospect & unfortunately are mostly bcks. To an extent I have some sympathy with you & indeed all at DTV however statements such as
Oh Beafer, if only you knew the truth.
do nothing other than support my observations.
As it happens I believe that Beefer has it more or less spot on. It's all about timing, something that Peel are extremely adept at, unfortunately something that you will eventually find is to your detriment.

A genuine effort to turn the airport around which is going to very soon start yielding some fruit and an airport that is still going to be here for decades to come contrary to what some might think, and I base that statement on knowledge and not hope.

Spot on, and you've answered your own statement as it's not that I am not able to back up what I say, it's that I'm simply not allowed.

DTVAirport - with the greatest respect, we've been hearing for years about how the airport will be relaunched and how the airport is in discussions with aviation companies

So far there's been a bit of growth in aircraft scrapping while passenger numbers are at the lowest level for 40 years while Newcastle is in robust health. Until some significant event takes place (actions, not just words) I'm staying with the doubters on this...

Okay granted I can appreciate that, but rest assured things are in the pipeline.

while Newcastle is in robust health
This however I cannot agree with, I flew from there earlier this month and it was dire, I mean really really dire, they've lost a lot of traffic themselves, it's just not as noticeable due to their size to begin with. Also, I wouldn't say an annual loss in excess of 8m adding to debts of 300m+ is healthy, ok a major regional facility like that is never going to go pop and they will theoretically just continually get re-financed, however it is still there, it's a major negative, and as far as debt goes that's not something we have to worry about.

Appreciate that the best form of defence is often attack but care to expand on these comments?

and it was dire, I mean really really dire,
in what way? NCL usually scores well in surveys against other UK airports of its size

they've lost a lot of traffic themselves,
lost some, gained some - but really....

and I don't think somebody in the Peel glasshouse should start throwing financial stones! (and lets face it, unless you're on the inside of both organisations, who really knows?)
