John Whittaker (Peel Group Chairman) is the largest shareholder of Intu Group and is Deputy Chairman on the Intu board, so possibly going for either a majority share in Intu or a full takeover?

Saudi money behind the possible purchase. Whitty is just the front man.

I’m lost too....

my guess 50% housing//retail//schools//offices..all Peel

50%. Mayors airport/airfield with limited connectivity and operations and no chance of growth...take your pick guys..

Airport there..but for how long?

Whittaker will be looking for cash after the Hammersmith INTU takeover failure as he will need millions to buy the Intu shares to gain full control.
Due to the ongoing search for cash DTVA may find a new buyer if he decides to offload the site, but he's usually in it for the long haul especially with Saudi backers.

Land is key to his plans, airlines and staff are not, especially up north. He must have thought it was xmas when he grabbed DTVA and its 800+ acres for half a million!!
The Masterplan isn't going anywhere if you hadn't noticed......
Question to the Peel supporters/workers on here. How much is costing to run DTVA per year?

The money involved in DTVA is insignificant in terms of the amounts being talked about in terms of INTU etc. The fate of the Peel empire doesn't revolve around what happens to DTVA.

Looks like hangar 4 concrete is being used for HGV training, so fence might be just a health and safety requirement, keep Beafer and his dog out!
