Watson Batty Architects were appointed by Leeds Bradford Airport to develop an outline planning application for the redevelopment of land on the LBA estate, creating a petrol filling station with convenience store, forming the first part of a wider masterplan for this area of the airport.
Leeds Bradford Airport is one of the most rapidly expanding regional airports in the UK, with aspirations to process 5.5million passengers by 2023. The proposals at LBA are necessary to provide an airport experience that passengers have now come to expect.
It is proposed that the site accommodates four double sided pump islands and one double sided HGV island. Both the four double sided islands and separate HGV pump island are to be covered by canopies. It is also envisaged that a jet wash bay is provided as well as an air and water area.
The proposed site layout plan includes 19 customer car parking spaces including two disabled spaces. Parking is located to the front of the sales block and to the western boundary of the site.
Once Planning Approval is granted there are a number of existing site operations that need to be repositioned elsewhere within the airport, to provide full vacant possession of the PFS site area.
