Do you have a vision to build within 15km of an Airport?

Are you a developer looking to purchase land and build a residential/commercial or renewable development?

If so, your planning development may be subject to airport restrictions.

It can be frustrating when you have submitted your full planning application and out of no where you receive an objection from the airport.

You are trying to understand what the airport restrictions mean for your development. There is no clarity on the issues with jargon being 'thrown' at you -  IFP assessments? infringements of obstacles surfaces? 

With our value and experience, we become a key player in your planning application. We help you gain planning consent from an airport without incurring any planning delays or additional costs.

What is Airport Safeguarding?

Airport safeguarding is a process used by airports to ensure that any development or activity taking place within 15km of the airport does not adversely affect the safe and efficient movement of aircraft.

Surfaces called 'Obstacle Limitation Surfaces' surround an airport to protect aircraft taking off and landing at an airport. Developments will be restricted in height.

What makes me qualified to be your Airport Safeguarding Expert?

Learn from my own experiences and success

I am a qualified Airport Safeguarding Manager, who worked 8 years at Edinburgh Airport. I gained my Safeguarding qualification at Gatwick Airport.

I am currently a member of the Combined Aerodrome Safeguarding Team (CAST), which is the leading body for aerodrome safeguarding. We make crucial links between policymakers, legislators and implementors. Our role is to:

  • Promote the aerodrome safeguarding specialism through participation in development of standards, legislation, regulations, material guides, training, and positive community interaction.

  • Act as the communication focal point between CAA, airports, government, non-government organisations (NGOs), environmental organisations, aviation industry stakeholders on issues relating to aerodrome safeguarding.

  • Educate and promote public awareness of aerodrome safeguarding and to promote the necessity to abide by measures to maintain flight safety.

  • Provide best practice and guidance materials to assist in the implementation of AS, including development of training materials delivered by established industry experts and accredited by a recognised education institution.

  • Represent airports, airfields, ADPOs, bird strike avoidance experts, in consideration of any new issues that affect the implementation of AS.

Saving 10K+ of Planning Costs

Powered By Results

We appreciate the cost of planning fees can be substantial, so we remove any additional costs by avoiding planning refusals or conditions.

The last thing we want is for your project to go over budget on the preliminaries before construction has even begun.

First Time Airport Consent

Forward Thinking

Conflicts of policies are a frequent cause of planning refusals.


This results in the council not validating or registering your planning application. 


Our reports are approved by the council and is submitted alongside your planning submission, giving you the best chance of securing consent at first attempt. 

Adding Value To Your Reputation

In Conversation

We don't want your company's reputation jeopardised if your planning application fails to meet current airport regulations.

We have a strong relationship with our 'Airport Regulators' to ensure our practice is up to date.

Ernest Carter, Non-Executive Director at Red Sky Personnel

Gordon Dewar, Chief Executive at Edinburgh Airport

Nyree played a critical role in keeping our airport safe, whether that be safeguarding against new critical infrastructure projects across our airport or across Scotland, to owning winter resilience plans. Nyree has challenged our operating methods to improve our response on numerous levels; whether that be introducing new technology.  Nyree extends her technical knowledge across our airport with 3rd parties and management tiers to ensure a safe, compliant and efficient operation across our airfield.

Alun Williams, Managing director, Arfon Consulting Ltd 

“As advisers on major infrastructure projects we have first-hand experience of supporting clients working within an airport’s safeguarding zone navigate holding objections from the CAA during a scheme’s development stages.

“In one case, even high-sided vehicles travelling on a trunk road had the capacity to generate air traffic control radar ‘clutter’ and a financial settlement reached to upgrade the radar’s software capabilities. Nyree’s specialist knowledge and skills will, doubtless, be an invaluable addition to any developer’s advisory team when bringing forward projects within airport safety zones.”
