Policy, planning & consultation support

Understanding the policy context within which airports operate is critical to business success. We have a strong track record of supporting airports, airlines and governments in the development and application of aviation policy.

Understanding national policy drivers, local planning issues and the views of external stakeholders is critically important . We have direct experience of working with both the public sector and industry within the policy and planning arena.


Our team has first-hand experience of the formulation of air transport policy and its implementation. This includes working for national and regional government , and a wide range of public sector organisations.


Our team has advised airports on developing strategies within complex policy frameworks to manage detailed and contentious planning applications. This often involves working with external stakeholders to ensure the risk of challenge is mitigated.

Public Consultations

Aligned with policy and planning is the need to manage and implement public consultation. We have managed a wide range of consultations supporting policy development and planning applications. We have analysed and reported on the responses received. We have the knowledge and systems in place to enable detailed analysis of large and technically complex submissions, as well as more simple questionnaires.
