ILFORD WAY APPEAL DECISION 3027388

Its an interesting read, clearly the aircraft noise was a major factor in rejecting the appeal.  Looking forwards it would suggest that housing would only be suitable on the site if aircraft noise significantly reduced from the airport over the years.  A possibility if modern aircraft get quieter, but probably outweighed by the fact that Manchester Airport plans to expand significantly over the coming years.
