Biggin Hill Airport consultation opportunity until mid-April

Supplementary Consultation on plans to introduce a new landing system for Runway 03 at Biggin Hill Airport

London Biggin Hill Airport plans to install an all-weather aircraft guidance system for flights landing at the airport from the south west.

We consulted widely on these proposals between November 2015 and February 2016. That Consultation Document and the Post Consultation report – which collated all the responses to the original consultation – are in the airport’s website and remain available at www.bigginhillairport.com/stakeholder-consultation

The original consultation determined that further work was necessary to resolve some technical details with other airspace users, including Heathrow and Gatwick Airports. That work is ongoing.

In the meantime, we (Biggin Hill Airport) are proposing an amendment to the last few miles of the approach route, which more closely follows the line of existing transport infrastructure such as the A23 trunk road and the M25. This supplementary consultation is specifically about that amendment.

This consultation, which runs for a six-week period from 27th February until mid-April 2017, is being conducted in accordance with the procedures laid down by the Cabinet Office and the UK Civil Aviation Authority.

We hereby invite you to respond to the consultation as a constituency, local government, interest group or airspace user group representative – or as a neighbour or other stakeholder.

Thank you in advance for your co-operation.
