Carlisle Airport redevelopment plan approved

Plans for a multi million-pound redevelopment of Carlisle Airport have been approved.

City councillors have backed resubmitted proposals for a freight terminal and revamped runway.

Stobart Air said it expected work on the £20m project, which also includes car parking and a fire station, would start before the end of the year.

The company said it retained long-term plans to reintroduce limited passenger services to the airport.
