Investment Programme for Solent Airport, Daedalus

Decision Maker: Executive

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes

Purpose:

To agree a programme of investment at Solent Airport, Daedalus to undertake essential maintenance and to extend the services that the airport offers to its customers.

 

Investment is required in the Council’s assets at Solent Airport, Daedalus to enable its continued safe operation and to continue to deliver the Council’s Vision to develop a vibrant and sustainable airfield.  The proposed programme of investment in hangarage, taxiways, aircraft parking, navigation aids and fuelling facilities will provide facilities and services that will support existing airside activities and improve the airport’s competitive position by removing some of the identified operational capacity constraints.

Decision:

RESOLVED that the Executive agrees that:

(b)  the Economic Hangars Scheme previously approved by the Executive be removed from the Capital Programme and a plan for replacement new managed hangarage be developed by 2025;

 

(c)  the Taxiway Improvement Scheme, as outlined in the Confidential Appendix A attached to the report, be added to the Capital Programme in 2023/24 to ensure the continued safe operation of the airport;

 

(d)  the Aircraft Parking Scheme, as outlined in the Confidential Appendix A attached to the report, be added to the Capital Programme to provide hard-standing aircraft parking on the grass area north of the Control Tower;

 

(e)  the Aeronautical Ground Lighting and a Performance-based Navigation System Scheme, as outlined in the Confidential Appendix A attached to the report, be added to the Capital Programme in 2023/24 to extend the airport’s use during periods of poor visibility and darkness;

 

(f)   the provision of self-fuelling facilities, as outlined in the Confidential Appendix A attached to the report, be added to the Capital Programme in 2022/23 to provide a more convenient service for fuelling aircraft;

 

(g)  the provision of a Grounds Maintenance facility, as outlined in the Confidential Appendix A attached to the report, be added to the Capital Programme in 2022/23; and

 

(h)  the Director of Planning and Regeneration, following consultation with the Executive Member for Policy and Resources, be delegated authority to award contracts for each of the above Schemes.
