I have also now scanned the planning statement.

What is clear is that this proposal is not increasing the capacity of the airport.

What it seeks to do is demolish the outdated T1 and replace it with an smaller extension to T2 which because of its modern design will maintain capacity. Basically it is modernising the airport not expanding it.

It seems a bit unclear to me but I don't think they are intending to using the parking area to the west of the terminal at present. Although used as car parking at can be used as part of the apron as that is already permitted and that will be used later in conjunction with the addition of piers which don't need consent as AndyH52 states above.

Only one extra stand as part of this development and 2553 parking spaces. See the Airport are making sure that the expansion is for cars not aircraft.
