Planning + Safeguarding

L+R Airport Consulting offers a comprehensive range of airport planning and safeguarding services, from strategic master planning to the detailed analysis of individual facilities, aeronautical studies and safeguarding assessments.

Planning is the process of preparing appropriate responses to possible future events. The value of high-quality, proactive, strategic planning cannot be underestimated as the commercial and operational impacts of inappropriate development decisions can be significant.

Our professionally qualified airport planners develop robust master plans that offer clear pathways for short-term developments whilst maximising flexibility in the long-term. Here, our design, operations and management experience helps identify optimum solutions.

Effective safeguarding of airport operations and the compatibility of surrounding land uses are a core area of L+R Airport Consulting’s expertise. Our highly experienced professionals have undertaken numerous assessments of on-and off-airport safeguarding assessments against the National Airports Safeguarding Framework (NASF).
