Ministers and the airport’s figureheads have joined forces to outline future plans for Durham Tees Valley as a result of the Peel Group recently taking over the majority of shares in the small to mid-sized transport facility.
Attended by Stockton North MP James Wharton as well as Stockton South MP Alex Cunningham, the meetings have been a success thus far, according to airport officials.
Peel Group director of strategic planning, Peter Nears, said, “During the recent debate on the Civil Aviation Bill in the House of Commons both Mr Wharton and Mr Cunningham took the opportunity to underline the need to secure a long-term future for Durham Tees Valley in the interests of the entire region—and the support of them and their Parliamentary colleagues is very important”.
Nears added, “That is why I was so pleased to have the opportunity to meet James Wharton and Alex Cunningham to underline the commitment of the Peel Group to Durham Tees Valley—and the need for all interests within the area to work together to ensure that we are able to explore every avenue for the development of the airport and indeed the site as a whole.”
