Helicopter flights to the Isles of Scilly from Cornwall will stop, despite Tesco dropping a legal challenge over the sale of a heliport in Penzance to Sainsbury's.
British International Helicopters (BIH) is selling its land to Sainsbury's and submitted a joint planning application, with the company, for a foodstore, park-and-ride and business units
Tesco had called for a judicial review into Cornwall Council's (CC) planning regulations. It said it dropped its appeal after assurances from CC. BIH said the flights still had to stop as resultant delays meant it could not get money from the deal quickly enough. For more information please see an article at BBC News.co.uk, 22nd August 2012.
