Airport Development Programme Update

07/10/2012

The Airport has recently submitted a planning application for the City Airport Development Programme (CADP) to Newham Council. 

The CADP aims to prepare LCY for the future and safeguard thousands of jobs, as well as creating thousands more and reinforcing the airport’s role as an international gateway to London and catalyst for the on-going regeneration of East London.

The expansion planned for the airport includes new aircraft parking stands to accommodate larger aircraft, a parallel taxi way to optimise runway capacity and a terminal extension. Crucially, the airport is not proposing a second runway, or any extension to the existing runway.

Benefits accruing from the growth of the airport would include:

  • 1,500 new jobs in the airport and its partner businesses, and an extra 500 jobs in the construction of phase of the CADP
  • A potential direct contribution to the UK economy of £1.5bn by 2023
  • Facilitation of inward investment into the London Borough of Newham and the wider east of London as a whole

The application is currently available to view and comment on via the London Borough of Newham’s planning website.
