Leeds Bradford Airport: Public consultation extended


People will be able to comment on controversial plans to build a new £150 million terminal at Leeds Bradford Airport for longer.

Leeds City Council has today announced that public consultation has been extended by three weeks to 7 July. The original deadline set by the council for responses was 3 June. 

A council spokesperson said:

“Due to the level of interest generated by the planning application concerning Leeds Bradford Airport, and the amount of documentation submitted as part of it, Leeds City Council is extending the formal period for making comments by three weeks to Tuesday, 7 July.

“Any representations should therefore be submitted before that revised deadline; however all comments received prior to a decision being made will be taken into account.”

Airport bosses say the proposals aim to dramatically improve passenger experience, deliver one of the UK’s most environmentally efficient airport buildings, and support the region’s economic prosperity.

But environmentalists at Group for Action on Leeds Bradford Airport (GALBA) say the expansion would lead to an increase in greenhouse gas emissions.

Details of the application can be viewed and comments can be submitted on Public Access by entering the application reference number 20/02559/FU


  1. Making in improvements to efficiency and making it one of the most environmentally efficient airports seems like a good thing. YOU CAN NOT PLEASE ALL THE PEOPLE ALL OF THE TIME. There will be people who want and need this airport and those that moan at every opportunity, Now the Green house gasses MAY increase is the latest objections. So that to me, means the airlines need to make the planes more environmentally friendly, not the airport.

  2. This development is much needed. Manchester airport is horrible, the travel to get there is a nightmare, and they are completely customer unfriendly. I never want to go there again. We need this improvement. LB A is much easier to get to and the attitude towards customers needs to be exactly opposite to Manchester. Better links from Bradford would be great. More flights in winter would be excellent. Let’s get away from using Manchester.
