Our Northern Runway Proposals – have your say

About our Consultation

We are now consulting on our proposals to bring the existing Northern Runway into routine use alongside our Main Runway. Departures would be shared between both runways. The Northern Runway would be used for smaller aircraft. All arrivals would continue to use our Main Runway.
Our plans also include the development of supporting infrastructure and facilities. These include road improvements, the realignment of the existing Northern Runway, a new Pier (aircraft stands), additional parking and hotels and improvements to the existing terminal buildings. You can find out more about these plans within these pages.
We are inviting comments from anyone with an interest in our proposals. Your feedback will play an important part in the development of our plans.
Our consultation began on 9 September 2021 and runs for 12 weeks until 11:59pm on 1 December 2021.

The Planning Process

Due to the scope of our proposals, it is classed as a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project. We will need to apply for a Development Consent Order (DCO) to build and operate it.
