As you may be aware, we had been in the process of seeking a broad range of stakeholders’ views on the way in which Southampton Airport should progress its part of a UK-wide initiative to modernise the country’s airspace, known as the Airspace Modernisation Strategy (AMS). This process is known as an Airspace Change Proposal (ACP). However, given the outbreak of COVID-19, Southampton Airport took the decision in 2020 to postpone this work.
During 2022, Southampton Airport was able to recommence its ACP. Over the course of the year, we are engaging with our existing stakeholders, in addition to any new relevant stakeholders. We have held a number of workshops and received feedback from a wide range of stakeholder groups.
We will soon be submitting our Stage 2 documents to the CAA for assessment in a December 2022 gateway. Following completion of Stage 2, we will commence Stage 3, which includes a full public consultation on the Comprehensive List of Options.
