A key recommendation of the Air Transport White Paper was the production of site specific Airport Masterplans.
The Masterplan was approved and published in June 2009. It sets out the current short term development requirements within a strategic context and establishes a framework for long-term strategic objectives for the re-development of the airport up until 2030.
This plan is currently under review.
The updated plan will be uploaded when available
