We are Passionate about Airport Safeguarding

Airport Safeguarding (ASL) was established in 2020 to offer a wider range of services to the airports, recognising the resource challenge they face in a very challenging environment. We manage the safeguarding consultations received from Local Planning Authorities (LPAs) including: pre-planning, full and, outline applications as well as crane assessments when required during the construction period. The aim is to support your airport’s safe operations ensuring its commercial viability.

In an ever-changing environment for planning and aviation regulatory requirements, airports have been under continuous pressure to operate in very challenging circumstances.

Airport Safeguarding Limited (ASL)

ASL has a thorough understanding of the safeguarding processes and objectives that can enable development on and around an airport, allowing the airport to realise maximum development potential whilst ensuring the ongoing safety of aircraft operations.

The safety of aircraft operations in the vicinity of an airport depends on the environment around the airport being protected from changes which could have a detrimental effect on safety of your operations. The assessment of obstacles around airports and their impact on safety is our core competency.

The process of consultation between airports and Local Planning Authorities is known as aerodrome safeguarding and it is subject to a variety of UK regulations.

In the UK, the safeguarding requirement is achieved through the Aerodrome Licensing system administered by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).

Licensed aerodromes in UK are required to comply with CAA Publications:

CAP 168 Licensing of Aerodromes CAP 168 and CAP 738 Safeguarding of Aerodromes – CAP 738

For certificated aerodromes, since 1 Jan 2021 CAA has adopted the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) regulations and are subject to retained regulations, Aerodromes Regulation No 139/2014, follow:

Law 139-2014 (30 Mar 2021) (caa.co.uk) and

Easy Access Rules for Aerodromes (Regulation (EU) No 139/2014) (caa.co.uk).

ASL can manage on airport’s behalf the following:

Further specialist assessments such as technical safeguarding, instrument flight procedures (IFP) safeguarding, glint & glare can also be completed through our parent company Cyrrus Ltd.
