Planning application

We have submitted our planning application outlining key changes to the way we operate along with proposed changes to our community funding programme.

Our proposals set out to safeguard the future growth of Farnborough Airport, enabling long-term planning which will safeguard and sustain the Airport’s economic role in the region.

Our application

Farnborough Airport has submitted a planning application to:

  • Increase the maximum number of annual aircraft movements from 50,000 to 70,000 per annum, including an increase in non-weekday aircraft movements from 8,900 to 18,900 per annum.
  • Amend the aircraft weight category of 50,000 to 80,000 kg to 55,000 to 80,000 kg, and an increase from 1,500 to 2,100 aircraft movements within this category, including an increase from 270 to 570 annual aircraft movements for non-weekdays.
  • Replace conditions numbers 7 (1:10,000 risk contour) and 8 (1:100,000 risk contour) of the existing planning permission with a new condition to produce public safety zone maps in accordance with the Civil Aviation Authority/Department for Transport requirements.

We have made the following changes to the application based on your feedback:

Proposed changes to the non-weekday operating hours have now been excluded from the application.
Revised annual and non-weekday flight limits have been introduced, to ensure growth is phased over time.
New measures to mitigate and reduce the potential for increased aircraft noise.
Additional funding and focus on local community initiatives and engagement.
A continued and renewed focus on emissions reduction and air quality monitoring.

We are planning for our long-term future.

Here are five reasons why our application matters:
