People and Culture

 

We want our airport to be fit for the current and future generations of Wales.

We are seeking your involvement now, so that we are best placed to understand your current needs and future aspirations.

We will carefully identify, assess and consider all of the relevant impacts that our plans could have on local communities. For some local residents, we acknowledge that there may be concerns about what our proposals will mean for them in the future. At this stage we do not intend to acquire any property to deliver our plans, beyond some land that we have already started discussions with the relevant landowners.

When we agree and publish our Masterplan, we will seek to deliver it in accordance with the appropriate statutory processes, for example with planning applications for proposed development. Working together with the Vale of Glamorgan Council and the Welsh Government, we will work in an open and honest way to share with you our detailed proposals and associated assessments so that you can take an informed view about what we intend to do at Cardiff Airport.

We believe that a successful airport is important to connecting people with key visitor locations, including tourism, leisure, recreation, culture and entertainment destinations.

As such, we also intend to work collaboratively with Visit Wales to help promote Wales’ cultural assets and in turn make it an easier and more attractive place to visit.

 Business and Economy

Our proposals seek to make Cardiff Airport more competitive and attractive for the people of Wales, the South West of England and beyond. By engaging with current and potential passengers, we aim to help shape our future plans for the Airport to help increase its use and value to Wales.

We want to make the Airport an important UK gateway to international travel and trade. As such, we intend to deliver a complementary land use strategy to support the primary aviation and connectivity function of the Airport, with supporting business, innovation and commercial related uses. This includes our planned expansion of cargo facilities and services, as well as a new business and education campus.

 

 

The plans for Cardiff Airport seek to realise a multi-million-pound private sector led investment and development strategy to help support a regional investment programme. Our Masterplan seeks to complement other’s plans for development, including the commercial focused development by Legal and General to the east of the Airport. By working together, we hope to maximise the business and economic potential of the Airport, Cardiff Capital Region and Wales as a whole.

 

 Environment and Sustainability

The provision of infrastructure fit for current and future generations, which will help facilitate the development of Cardiff Airport through improving access to communities, culture, employment and natural resources, will help promote and protect Wales’ place in the world.

As such, we want to make the Airport and the way that people visit the Airport more sustainable.

As part of our proposals, we intend to provide integrated and sustainable low carbon transport infrastructure. We intend to deliver increased choice for those who work at, visit and use the Airport, with phased active travel links, electric bus infrastructure, electric bikes for hire, electric vehicle charging points and bus rapid transit links to the planned campus.

In addition, a sustainable and long-term approach to development is envisaged, utilising solar technology, sustainable building materials and cleaner technologies.
