Planned Airport Development

What does CADP propose?

The development will comprise seven aircraft parking stands, an extended terminal building, a new eastern passenger pier and associated works on a platform over the King George V Dock.

It is proposed to provide a new passenger forecourt in front of the terminal building together with a new office building (to replace City Aviation House) and a hotel. Passenger and staff car parking will re-organised.

The new aircraft parking stands are proposed to the east of existing aircraft parking stands 21-24. As part of the upgrade works there will be an extension to the aircraft taxiway running along the eastern length of the runway.

A landside access pontoon for use by emergency services will also be provided at the eastern end of the seven new stands.

The proposals are not intended to alter how the airport operates.

The proposals will:

  • Not increase the permitted number of aircraft movements. The airport will continue to operate up to a maximum limit of 120,000 noise factored movements per annum, as approved by London Borough of Newham in July 2009;

  • Maintain environmental and operational controls, strategies and systems approved through the 2009 Planning Agreement (with any appropriate amendments, where necessary)

  • Not create new runways or extend the existing one.
