London Ashford Airport, Lydd



ClientLondon Ashford Airport

We obtained approval for an airport runway extension, a new terminal building and parking in a highly sensitive location in Kent.

The £25m development will enable Ashford airport to handle larger aircraft. It provides much-needed additional capacity in the south east of England.

We coordinated a complex and extensive planning process. The location falls within at least five protected site designations. The need to balance economic benefits against substantial environmental impacts gave rise to a lengthy public inquiry.

The Government gave the go ahead for work to start in 2013.
