Runway Extension

Southampton Airport has now submitted 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 covers:

  • 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:
