Businesses support expansion of Stansted Airport

Newspaper Article:

Newport Business Association NBA totally supports the expansion of business at Stansted Airport. For too long the North-side of Stansted Airport, where the real business of air passenger business traffic takes place, has been ignored and found floundering in these economic times.
Jeremy Rose, NBA founder, stated: “The North side of Stansted Airport, the business hub, is undervalued by Stansted Airport Limited, and seems to be a huge embarrassment to Uttlesford District Council. More opportunities should be developed to enable local businesses to start up and use land for business related use — not stifle the economic development because NIBI’s want to restrict use to just airport related use. Only 22% of staff working at Stansted Airport come from Uttlesford. The business opportunities are huge if only Uttlesford District Council would grasp the initiative and develop the North side of the airport into a thriving hub for business related enterprises.”
On Friday 28 February, Penny Stephens from InFlite, will explain why she chose Stansted Airport to be site for her family business, and how she’s suffering from big competitors like BAA at Heathrow, Luton Airport business carriers and a lack of support from Uttlesford District Council.
Penny explained: “Business Aviation is predominantly used by business leaders, enabling travel by entrepreneurs whose enterprise and energy are a cornerstone of economic growth rather than wealthy people travelling for leisure.  The Business Aviation sector contributed a total of 19.7bn Euros in annual gross value added (GVA) to the European economy in 2007 and accounted for 164k jobs.  Farnborough which is a dedicated Business Aviation Airport generates some £17 million to the local economy and employing over 1,000 at the airport site and around 4,000 in the airports wider supply chain and induced employment.”
“The majority of business flights from the US, Middle East, Hong Kong and India arrive and depart at night to enable them to achieve a full working day prior to departing that evening to do it all again in another country.  Noise levels of modern Business Jets are better than scheduled airlines. Business jets are able, given the weight and performance, to depart the runway earlier and attain altitude quicker than scheduled airlines  therefore, reducing the noise environmental footprint in the local area.”
A spokesman from Stansted Airport commented: “Stansted Airport has long been a catalyst for economic activity and opportunity within the regional business community, helping support jobs, inbound tourism and key to attracting inward investment. Now, under the ownership of M.A.G, we have very ambitious plans to grow passenger numbers by attracting new airlines and increasing the range of destinations with existing customers. We’ve already secured long-term deals with both easyJet and Ryanair so our focus now is to broaden the route network, offer passengers more choice and create a richer mix of airlines operating out of Stansted, including business carriers.”
Jeremy Rose agrees with these sentiments, but urges Stansted Airport to get its act together: “Airports are always a reflection of the regions they serve — what businesses want, what communities want. We all know our region is already hugely successful and packed full of entrepreneurial spirit but we believe by working together our aim that Stansted should fulfil its full potential can go hand in hand with regional growth and shared prosperity.”
If you’d like to put your views across, and hear the case for expanding the business of Stansted Airport, please contact Jeremy Rose, NBA on 01799 541114 or email nba@c-lutions.co.uk to reserve your seat. Meeting starts at 07.45am, Coach & Horses, Newport, Essex CB11 3TR

Cost effective cutouts in fight against crime

Newspaper Article:

‘Cost effective’ cops were on display at our October meeting. Creative Solutions provided Newport Business Association with a cost-effective way of cutting crime -cut-out-cops to deter crime and reduce shoplifting.

Businesses feel vulnerable to rising crime during these difficult economic times and have had to take drastic action to secure premises from criminal activities. NBA members suggested an alternative to expensive deterrents.

NBA members suggested that cardboard cutouts, as demonstrated with the three cost-effective, cardboard policemen displayed at the meeting, could deter burglars and thieves from shops and business premises.

Police Forces have loved the idea, and the cutouts, when placed in shop windows and doorways, boost public confidence, deter criminals and make the police more ‘approachable’. Greater Manchester Police claim that the cardboard cutouts at superstores have reduced shoplifting by 75%.

Nick Alston, Conservative candidate for Essex Police & Crime Commissioner, noted: “I was delighted to be invited to speak to the NBA to raise awareness about the P&CC election on 15 November and to talk about my campaign. The election is a great opportunity for everyone in Essex, for the first time, to have some democratic say over the priorities of the Essex Police and to elect someone to hold the Police to account on their behalf. I am enthusiastic about the role and believe I have the relevant experience to make a success of it. It really is democracy in action; we don’t see new initiatives like this very often.”

“I had some great suggestions and questions from the members of the NBA. It is clearly an association that not only promotes business to business opportunities but is also keen to engage with the important issues of the day and to support the local community. Thanks and well done to the NBA.”

If you’d like to order the incredibly life-like cardboard policemen, call Newport Business Association on 01799 541114, or email nba_police@c-lutions.co.uk for a special introductory offer of £60 + vat, or £160 + vat for all three. The dedicated police team could make the ultimate deterrent. Work them in shifts or station them in different areas. See web site for more details: www.newportbusinessassociation.co.uk
