Leeds Bradford Airport planning approval awarded

LBA Planning Approval Awarded

The plans, first announced in January 2020, replace a previously consented scheme and LBA’s existing terminal building with a more efficient and sustainable development, enabling the airport to reach its target of becoming carbon net-zero by 2023 for airport operations.

The plans propose the construction of a three-floor, 34,000 sq. mt. replacement terminal on an alternative site within the airport’s boundary. Prior to the submission, LBA engaged in an extensive consultative process, with thousands of residents and organisations across Yorkshire providing feedback on the proposed plans.

Vincent Hodder, CEO of Leeds Bradford Airport

“We are delighted that our plans for a replacement terminal have been awarded planning approval by Leeds City Council, enabling us to become an outstanding net zero airport, delivering a much-improved passenger experience and creating thousands of jobs, helping to support our region’s recovery. We would like to thank those that have supported our application through the statutory process and we will be consulting with stakeholders over the coming months on the appropriate next steps.”
