This includes advising on all aspects of the acquisition and development of land for airport related uses, including due diligence, agreements with third parties (be it sellers or future tenants), the construction package, financing and forward funding arrangements and planning. We can also advise on specific issues in respect of increasing airport capacity, including public safety zones, ATM limits, passenger number limits, access routes and security.
