The Committee considered a report that provided a chronological summary of critical issues in relation to DTVA, starting from 2003. In particular, the issues related to Peel Investment DTVA LTD (the 89% majority shareholder) ambitions for significant strategic change and the development of a Masterplan for the Durham Tees Valley Airport. The report also provided information relating to national aviation policy and also the economic importance of the airport to Tees Valley and Durham.

Members also discussed the scope and project plan for the review and raised the following points/comments/questions:-
- PEEL required the housing development to keep the airport viable but it was important it wasn't a short term fix.
- If the housing development isn't possible what alternative plans exist.
The Committee were informed that a representative from The Peel Group would attend the Committee meeting on 7th July.
