In full: the motion passed by the council
PLYMOUTH City Council firmly believes that the residents and businesses of Plymouth deserve fast, efficient and reliable transport links with the rest of the country and beyond in order for Plymouth to prosper and for its residents to enjoy the freedom of movement enjoyed by most other cities of our size in the UK.
We therefore call on the Prime Minister and the Secretaries of State for Transport and Business Innovation and Skills to take action which would result in Plymouth Airport becoming a national asset providing a reliable and extensive commercial air network for the benefit of local residents and businesses.
We recognise that it is not possible to protect the airport land for ever, but we will use our planning powers to protect the airport from development for as long as legally possible.
We call on all Plymouth politicians inside and outside this chamber to support this resolution as well as the people of Plymouth and the Herald.

We wish to demonstrate to Government the deeply felt concerns of Plymouth residents and the support they feel for the Plymouth City Airport and call upon The Herald to organise a campaign to encourage residents, employees and businesses to join me in writing to the Prime Minister to express their support for what I have proposed today.
