An airport is to close one of its three runways in order make way for a new business park. It plans to build a new business park, called the Cheltenham Gloucester Exchange, as well as a new access road. The decision requires final sign-off by the secretary of state due to its potential impact on the surrounding countryside. Some of the businesses based in the airport had objected to the application, claiming if it went ahead then it would "impact operations and safety". Gloucestershire Airport previously said it was in discussions with those who objected, and reduced the size of the site as a compromise but some remain opposed to the plans, according to the BBC's Local Democracy Reporting Service.
