Department of Environment calls for new inquiry

The Department of Environment has submitted a new request for a public inquiry into plans to extend the runway at George Best Belfast City Airport.

The Planning Appeals Commission (PAC) refused to proceed with an inquiry last year. It wanted the department to produce more detailed environmental information about the likely noise impacts.

It is not clear when the inquiry will begin but a preliminary meeting will be held in June.
