London Southend Airport Ltd

Lichfields advised London Southend Airport through its early formative stages including preparation of a development strategy to guide future development at the airport and economic impact reports. We subsequently secured planning permission for the new railway station, terminal and visitor centre (now built) along with adjustments to the airport operational boundary and the runway in order to ensure Civil Aviation Authority compliance.  The approval process included preparation of an Environmental Statement.

London Southend airport has seen major investment take place in its infrastructure along with UK based airlines serving predominantly European destinations. This in turn has enabled it to make a significant contribution to the local and regional economy.
