Southampton Airport published its draft Masterplan in September 2005 and its revised Masterplan (with very few revisions) in November 2006. The Masterplan set out the following aspirations:
|Commercial Air Traffic Movements
|Aircraft parking stands
|Car parking spaces
Other possible developments are only being discussed informally. These include:
extension of Runway End Safety Areas (which are currently the subject of review)
extension of existing terminal building
construction of a second terminal building after 2015
construction of a new taxiway to link new aircraft stands to the runway.
Much of this development falls into what is called 'permitted development' (Town & Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order 1995, Article 2 and Schedule 2). The airport would be expected to publish a consultation document, and all development at the airport requires permission from the CAA, but no planning application to Eastleigh Borough Council is needed. A planning application would be needed major building/construction projects would require a planning permission from Eastleigh Borough Council, for example a second terminal building of over 500m2 or an extension to the existing one of over 15%.
are no controls on increases in
air transport movements beyond regular air traffic control.
