Runway Extension

Southampton Airport is in the process of submitting a planning application to Eastleigh Borough Council to enable the first phase of delivery of proposals outlined in its master plan document, A Vision For Sustainable Growth.


We have been working closely with the local authority and have carried out a significant series of technical assessments, public and stakeholder consultation.


Our planning application will cover:

  • A 164 metre extension at the northern end of the runway, within existing airport boundaries;
  • An associated blast screen adjacent to the runway;
  • Up to an additional 600 car parking spaces.


The timeline for the planning application, and if successful, runway development:
