Parish takes airport fight to High Court

A PARISH council based near Stansted Airport is taking its fight for better homeowners' compensation to the European courts.

Takeley Parish Council claims that the airport's owner, BAA, should provide fairer treatment for local residents whose property values are affected by the expansion of the airport but do not qualify for its current compensation package.

But yesterday BAA said that the current scheme - the Homeowner Support Scheme - was voluntary, not statutory, and had already been unsuccessfully challenged in UK courts.
