Biggin Hill Airport limited hours decision called in

Published Monday, 14 December 2015

The decision to grant an extension of operating hours, with stringent conditions and obligations for Biggin Hill Airport, has been ‘called in’.

This follows the meeting of the Council’s Executive and a meeting of the full council on Wednesday 25 November. A call in of a decision can take place in the five working days after the draft minutes of a meeting are published. 

A council spokesperson said, “All councils that operate an Executive model of governance are required to have call-in arrangements. A meeting of the Executive and Resources PDS Committee will be convened in due course, with the date not yet set.” 

The call in procedure is part of the council’s constitution and allows at least five councillors to request that a decision of the Council's Executive is reconsidered. The Executive and Resources Policy Development and Scrutiny Committee will now meet to examine the call in along with the reasons and decide whether or not to ask the Executive to reconsider their decision.
