London City Airport, London
RPS has been advising London City Airport (LCY) on various planning, environmental and sustainability matters over a number of years.
We coordinated the EIA, Health Impact Assessment and Sustainability and Carbon Analysis supporting LCY’s planning application for a 50% uplift in aircraft movements and associated operational changes at the airport.
As part of the discharge of planning obligations under that permission, we prepared a comprehensive Sustainability Strategy and Action Plan for the airport. We were integral to the development of the strategy with and worked closely with LCY to explore options to reduce energy, waste and water consumption and to implement other sustainability initiatives.
RPS has also assisted LCY in calculating its carbon footprint as a precursor to joining the ACI Europe Carbon Accreditation Scheme. We commenced the sustainability appraisal and EIA to support a new planning application (currently pending) to construct 14 replacement aircraft stands, taxi-lanes and other infrastructure.
We are presently assisting LCY in the preparation of a new Master Plan setting out its development plans up to 2030.
