5,000 backing airport petition

Have your say

A PETITION supporting the possible reopening of the old Sheffield City Airport has almost reached 5,000 signatures.

The figure will trigger a debate at a full meeting of Sheffield Council.

Campaigners including the Federation of Small Businesses want an inquiry to see whether the airport could be viable if reopened.

Two private groups are interested in buying the site from owner Sheffield Business Park to revive services.
