A Vision For Sustainable Growth
Southampton Airport’s Master Plan 2037
We are delighted to publish the airport’s finalised Master Plan 2037, which is now called A Vision For Sustainable Growth – a title which puts sustainability at the heart of all we do.
This vision document sets out our growth path for the airport over the next 20 years, including key developments and the associated land use plans.
The plan highlights the airport’s positive ambition as a key transport and economic asset, supporting our region’s strategy of building upon its strength in marine, advanced manufacturing, further education and tourism.
Following a public consultation on its initial draft last autumn, the plan has been updated to reflect the feedback we received from the community. You can read more about that feedback below and find a copy of A Vision For Sustainable Growth here.
Phase one of the plan would see us extend our runway by 164 metres within our existing boundaries. A planning application which, if successful, will enable this is in the process of being submitted to Eastleigh Borough Council and is due to go live for public consultation in November.
