Sunday Telegraph: "Radical planning powers are to be unveiled by ministers"


Link to Sunday Telegraph

"The planning framework will be published on Tuesday by ministers who want a new age of 'pro-growth' planning.

"High-Speed-Two chief engineer Prof McNaughton, who holds posts at Imperial College, London, and Nottingham University, raised the prospect of a major expansion to Birmingham Airport, which could be rebranded 'London Birmingham' because the travel time to the capital using the high-speed link would be shorter than the time taken to travel from London to Stansted.

"Prof McNaughton also said the HS2 would create a 'second Docklands' in a densely populated area of west London."
