Planned Airport Development

CADP summary

The City Airport Development Programme (CADP) planning application was submitted to the London Borough of Newham on July 26th. Newham will be conducting their own statutory consultation in August.

CADP aims to prepare London City Airport for the future, safeguard thousands of jobs as well as creating thousands more and reinforce the airport’s role as an international gateway to Newham and a catalyst for the on-going, exciting regeneration of the borough.

Crucially these improvements do not propose an increase in flight movements above the 120,000 that LCY already has permission for, an extension to the existing runway or any plans for a new one.

Our development will also bring a number of benefits to the local area, including:

  • 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
