Public Consultation for Belfast International Airport terminal extension

Public Consultation for Belfast International Airport terminal extension

Gravis Planning has recently hosted an online and remote community consultation exercise for Belfast International Airport’s proposal to extend the existing terminal building to accommodate a new security area.

The pre-application community consultation for Belfast International Airport’s proposal follows the mandate from The Department for Transport that all major airports in the UK will be required to install 3D scanning technology by December 2023.

This equipment will provide security staff with clear, three-dimensional images of the contents of people’s bags. The proposed extension is required not only to accommodate the larger x-ray machines but also to enhance and improve the customer experience through the security checking area.

The public consultation process included a project webpage with feedback section, bespoke project email address and consultation phone line. The webpage presented the plans for the project as well as visualisations of what the proposed extension to the terminal building will look like.

The next step for the project, following the completion of the Pre-Application Community Consultation period, will be the submission of a planning application to Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council.
