Updates to AEF’s guide to current UK airport planning applications and planned expansions

23rd October, 2020

AEF’s Airports Expansions Guide, which we launched in September to track the progress of new and existing applications, has been updated to reflect recent changes. 

The guide now notes the recent hearing on Heathrow Airport’s third runway, and the successful application for judicial review of the decision to grant permission to Manston Airport to open as a freight hub. Meanwhile, Eastleigh Borough Council is inviting comments on Southampton Airport’s planning application to extend its runway, and Luton Airport is consulting on a proposal to increase its current capacity from 18 million to 19 million passengers per annum.

AEF continues to press for a moratorium on all airport expansion plans, until and unless they can be shown to be compatible with the UK’s environmental commitments.
