Support for Sheffield airport taking off

Have your say

SIGNATURES on a petition calling for Sheffield City Airport to reopen have now reached more than 3,600.

Two groups have said they are interested in buying the site from Sheffield Business Park, although no discussions have yet taken place.

Neville Martin, of South Yorkshire Federation of Small Businesses, said: “We are redoubling our efforts to raise the number of signatures beyond the 5,000 mark, at which point we will be in a position to force Sheffield Council to debate the matter.”
