Neil Jarman of Cole Jarman on behalf of the Secretary for State for Education presented noise evidence at the July 2014 planning appeal hearing.

Consent was initially granted by the Secretary of State DCLG in September 2014, however withdrawn after an error in the decision letter was acknowledged.

The decision was subject to a High Court challenge in July 2016, but the decision upheld.
