How will Americans get to our city?
I WAS somewhat amused by the article Hello Plymouth… welcome to Plymouth (The Herald, Friday, October 5). There in the picture is Tudor Evans showing off Plymouth. Good idea, but I wonder if he said "we have no airport for your people to fly to", you will have to get a slow train to Plymouth or drive for four hours. If my memory serves me right, wasn't it the Chamber of Commerce who said that "the airport is a lost cause"?
What is the point of advertising the city when there is such poor transport infrastructure? Let us hope that the airport will be open by 2020. Action needs to be taken now with Viable waiting to do something about it. Let us not wait for David Cameron to say no, which he will. I ask Tudor Evans to sit down again, with a blank agenda, with Sutton Harbour Group (SHG) and Viable, on a regular basis and sort this debacle out. Tell SHG that they are not going to build on the Plymouth airport site, so stop wasting the Planning Committee's time.
I have emailed Tudor Evans asking him who was responsible for the Armageddon clause and his reply was, I quote, "As far as responsibility for drawing up the 'Armageddon' clause is concerned, we will contact you again with details of who drew this up when we discover it".
