May 2020 - Leeds Bradford Airport - Planning Application 20/02559/FU


There are plans afoot to make big changes at LBA. The planning application reference for all this is 20/02559/FU. It is up for consideration now and the Council are already accepting comments from interested parties. The application incorporates the construction of a new terminal and probably the most immediate aspect for Leeds residents is an increase in the permitted night flying hours. If the application is successful, the daytime operating hours will be brought forward to 06:00 in the morning (from 07:00 as at present) and extended to 23:30 (from 23:00) in the evening. The planning application has serious implications for noise, the environment, carbon emissions and traffic issues. More detailed information can be found by visiting the GALBA website
