Proposed airside Norwich Aeropark at Norwich International Airport.

Norwich Aeropark: Take-off success for Iceni’s Transport team

Iceni’s Transport team helped secure planning consent for the proposed airside Norwich Aeropark at Norwich International Airport. Planning consent was unanimously granted by the planning committees of both Norwich City Council and Broadland District Council for a 79,000 sqm site comprising hangar and office space which will be developed on 40 hectares of land to the north east of the main runway. It is anticipated that the completed development will provide over 2,200 jobs.

The first phase, which comprises 13,800sqm and an access road connecting to the A140 roundabout, will see Air Livery consolidate its UK business in Norwich, creating a total of 150 jobs. The plans were recognised as a great opportunity for providing much needed increased skilled and unskilled employment, and for putting Norwich at the forefront of the aviation industry.

Iceni’s Transport Team advised the client on transport matters producing a Transport Assessment to support the application which involved extensive consultation with the Local Authority and Highways Agency. The proposals also included a phased package of Travel Plan measures for both the new Aeropark and also the existing Airport, which previously did not have the benefit of Travel Planning.
