Plans to create an enterprise zone at Coventry Airport have been backed by Warwick District Council.

Owner Sir Peter Rigby announced plans in April to invest £250m into the site in a scheme he said would create up to 10,000 jobs.

Plans include developing a technology office park and improving the passenger terminal and cargo facilities.

Financial problems forced previous owners West Midlands International Airport to close it in December 2009.
