I don't think they need to be subsidised any longer. The costs have come down so much that they as cheap as as fossil fuels.

Similar housing schemes have been successfully developed at a number of other UK airports and the planned housing will be on land which will not affect airport operations nor hinder future growth.

Can anybody think where such significant housing development has taken place so close to the terminal?

nor hinder future growth.
Most growing airports are building car parks, not building on them!

Southend for one, there are others, and there will still be parking to spare, they're not exactly building on top of it, more around it

While investment is of course welcome...do you not t get the feeling the airport is becoming somewhat hemmed in??

HWU - yes, exactly - can't think of any other airport which has initiated such new housing development right up to the terminal complex

RR- Southend? Where are you thinking of?

and there will still be parking to spare
Based on current numbers maybe, but the quote above says the development won't "hinder future growth".

The Masterplan clearly shows the current car park being built on - at the Eastern end and the western area currently used by the caravan store (the Masterplan does say it is possible to expand the car parking "potentially through a decked solution" - that's what every executive housing estate needs...)

Luton surely? Hardly a quiet backwater

Take a look at Peel owned DSA, housing developments on all access approaches, and the former RAF accommodation sites. Has worked for them there, seems they are only building on the same model at DTV.

OK - lets go over this again as I've not made myself clear. The latest press statement has a quote from a spokesperson saying:
Central to our plans is maximising the potential of the whole airport site to provide other sources of revenue alongside our passenger and general aviation operations.
Haven't got a problem with that - exactly what they should be doing, and as I've stated previously this is what has happened so well at Liverpool (IMHO, a better example than DSA)

however, the statement also says
Similar housing schemes have been successfully developed at a number of other UK airports and the planned housing will be on land which will not affect airport operations nor hinder future growth
Now, I can't think of another airport where an airport company has promoted housing so close to the terminal complex - as HWU says hemming it in - and can't see how this won't hinder future growth. Where airports have developed around the terminal it ahs been complementary activities - hotels, car parking(!), logistics parks, etc.

Other than providing funding (admittedly not an insignificant benefit), can't see how having housing so close to the terminal is remotely complementary - far more likely to be the opposite...

A reversal of the decision to stop bucket and spade routes.
Eat humble pie and do as Carlisle is going to be doing ( this from the horses mouth) - we are probably giving easy jet free landing slots the same deal as how we got them into Southend which started as we will ).
Off topic but their main runway is being closed shortly for total resurfacing and approach and landing aids.
Lighting etc.
The terminal is hemmed in and will be having 7 large jet capacity stands . This being attached to the logistics hub.
They are confident Ryanair will come . Bravado maybe but coming from where the information came from it's fair to say there may be truth in it. But a point here is Carlisle is surprisingly very busy a lot of mixed traffic this has delayed the runway works. But that airport has a museum and a huge distribution centre plus plans for some other complex close to the site.
More telling was the comment that the terminal is quite close the the runway or will be.
The old terminal is closer to the museum . But I did get a few photos.
As stated DSA has housing surrounding it.
And much more coming .
why worry about one carpark being the deatjknell.
As I say if they allow more routes and beg Thomson back minus fees . Those homes will be full of people who won't have to endure the northern parts of the N1 to get to Newcastle.
So I can see how it will be a benefit .
And future expansion .
The airport as I read is operating at 1972 levels.
I would not worry about making it bigger for eons!.

Where is it that this mythical population currently live?

A surge of Ryanair pax, prepared to fly from Carlisle or DTV, presently live and fly from where?

That will change.... why?

Bucket and spade routes always seemed to do well before, even doing a 'W' pattern with Ncl. would be a start.

Who wants to pay the full price which makes a profit for a bucket and spade holiday!

The same place they lived when Teesside Airport had about 8 times as many passengers as it does now? They haven't gone anywhere but the airlines have, for some reason.

The same people who use Ncl and Lba at the moment. I would imagine that most company's who fly from any airport want to make a profit. More passengers of any type should mean a win, win situation for airport and the airlines that use them.

Press comments

Looks like some of the Peel supporters have been posting public comments under the airport news piece praising Peel plans for no holiday flights.

Re the plans for the new 55 home development which was know as the Lancaster House buildings. They are going to be built right next to the new railway station.

Type in Lancaster House in the planning search box. The land sometimes floods from memory.
