This is what Leeds Bradford Airport could look like after £150m expansion plans approved
This is what Leeds Bradford Airport could like after £150m expansion plans were approved in principle by the council.
Councillors voted by nine votes to five on Thursday, February 11 to agree to the plans in principle, in a crunch meeting the came to a close after hours of painstaking deliberation, comments and questions.
They asked planning officers to renegotiate conditions on matters raised by the panel during the meeting.
The updated plans will now return to the council’s plans panel committee at a later date.
Campaigners voiced their views about environmental and noise concerns, while supporters said the infrastructure would improve the economy and could go on to establish the city as leading business hotspot.
The expansion plans include a new terminal with three main floors and improved vehicle access, which is to be built closer to a proposed new ‘parkway’ rail station, new car parking areas, as well as a new bus terminal and taxi drop-off facilities to the front of the new passenger terminal.
This is what the airport could look like subject to a change and tightening up of certain conditions being discussed and agreed with the airport.
