On Wednesday 10 August 2016 TAG Farnborough Airport commenced an additional consultation following the identification of opportunities to refine the Proposal submitted to the CAA in July 2015. This consultation is limited in scope and geographical area, details of which along with information on how to respond to the consultation can be found in the Consultation Documents section of this website.

TAG Farnborough Airport held the first of two meetings at Capron House, Midhurst on Thursday 1 September 2016 at 7pm. A second meeting will be held, also at Capron House on Tuesday 20 September 2016 at 7pm for those stakeholders who would like to ask questions regarding these refinements. The 8-week consultation has been extended to 12 weeks, ending on Wednesday 2 November 2016.

Following the closure of the consultation, Feedback Report Part C will be produced, published and submitted to the CAA detailing the responses to this consultation and actions that TAG may take as a result.

A decision on the Proposal is expected by early 2017 and will be published on this website.

On 3 July 2015, TAG Farnborough Airport submitted a formal Airspace Change Proposal (ACP) to the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) for evaluation.  The ACP comprises an extensive series of documents as outlined in CAA document CAP725 (Airspace Change Process), including analysis of design data, charts, maps and diagrams as well as a consultation report.  In accordance with CAA guidance, a decision is usually expected within 16 weeks.  On 30 October 2015, the CAA advised TAG Farnborough Airport of its intention to pause the decision process to review certain technical, implementation aspects and airspace sharing arrangements.  This is not unusual, particularly with such a complex application, and TAG Farnborough Airport will advise when the process has resumed.

From 3 February to 12 May 2014, TAG Farnborough Airport held a consultation as part of an Airspace Change Proposal (ACP).

The consultation closed at 10am on Monday 12 May 2014.

A first document, Feedback Report Part A, which provides a summary analysis of the numbers and types of responses received, was published on 29 August 2014 and is available to view here.

A second document, Feedback Report Part B, provides more details of changes to the airspace design or procedures that were considered, based on the responses received. This was published on 3 July 2015 and is available to view here.
