St Mary’s Airport Proposals To Go On Display

st mary's airport proposalIslanders will get a chance to see the proposals for refurbishment of St Mary’s airport terminal at a drop in session next Friday.

The Council agreed to the ambitious £5m plan, including changes to the terminal building, installation of new navigational equipment and repairs to the runway and aprons, last year

Diana Mompoloki from the Council’s Economic Development Department says the draft plans for the terminal include a new glass front, re-siting of the entrance and check-in desks, new single departure and arrival points and a new café area.

She says they want to use the shell of the existing terminal and open it up, to make it more welcoming for visitors and to improve the functionality of the building.

The proposed internal finishes will also be on display for comment.

However, plans to change the parking arrangements for travellers and businesses could prove controversial.

Diana says everyone is welcome to come along and give their views from 12pm to 7pm on 24th May at the Wesleyan Chapel on St Mary’s.
