Award winning property team advises City Airport on planning appeal

Global Business November 25, 2016

Global law firm Norton Rose Fulbright has been named ‘Property Team of the Year’ by the British Legal Awards 2016. The Awards, held last night, showcase excellence across the legal sector.

The prestigious award recognises the team's work advising London City Airport on the successful planning appeal and compulsory purchase orders (CPOs) for its £344m expansion project, the City Airport Development Programme (CADP). CADP will deliver a passenger terminal extension, additional aircraft stands and a full length parallel taxiway over King George V Dock. The expansion will allow City Airport to accommodate a new generation of larger, more fuel efficient and quieter aircraft, meet the demand for more aircraft movements on the runway in peak hours, and, handle growing numbers of passengers.

Duncan Field, head of planning, UK, and lead partner on the matter, commented:

“This was a high profile and challenging project and I am delighted the hard work of the entire team has been recognised by this award.”

The Norton Rose Fulbright team advising City Airport also included Sarah Bischoff and Victoria Watson in the planning team. They were assisted by Katherine Forster, Jemima Grimshaw and Kinga Metkowski, and supported by real estate partner Neil Biswas and associate Paul Matthews.
