Spaceport 1 Airspace Change Consultation Reminder

Comhairle nan Eilean Siar is reminding members of the public that the Spaceport 1 Airspace Change Consultation remains open until Friday 24 May 2024.

Feedback is welcomed and is an essential part of the airspace change process, as it helps to develop the final airspace design and associated procedures.  It also enables the Sponsor to gain a better understanding of stakeholders’ operations and how they might be impacted by the proposed airspace change.  Any impacts will be considered and mitigations developed as appropriate to minimise any identified adverse impact(s). 

The CAA’s preferred method of providing feedback on airspace change proposals is via the Citizen Space platform.  Interested parties can ask questions and provide feedback via the ‘feedback questionnaire’.

Hard copies of the consultation documents and the feedback questionnaire may be requested from the Airspace Change Manager –  Copies are also available for collection from Comhairle nan Eilean Siar, Balivanich Council Offices, Isle of Benbecula, HS7 5LA.

Completed questionnaires may be returned by email or post to the Spaceport 1 Airspace Change Manager at the Comhairle Offices in Balivanich.

All documents associated with the airspace change application can be viewed on the Civil Aviation Authority’s airspace portal.
