Newquay: Cornwall A Step Closer To Space
CGI Concept Video of a UK Spaceport
Plans for Newquay to be home of Europe's first spaceport moved a step closer on Tuesday 3rd March.
The Cornish town has appeared on a shortlist of six possible locations - an updated list from July 2014.
The shortlisted sites are now
- Campbeltown in Scotland
- Glasgow Prestwick
- Stornoway in Scotland
- Llanbedr in Wales.
RAF Leuchars was also confirmed as a potential temporary facility.
The government has confirmed widespread support for its plans and this paves the way towards making commercial spaceflight operations in the UK a reality.
The government has ruled out 2 airfields at RAF Lossiemouth and Kinloss Barracks for operational reasons, given their vital role in Defence.
Other locations can still be submitted if operators believe they can fulfil the requirements.
Today's consultation response marks another step forward in our work to support this emerging industry, which will create jobs and drive economic growth.
The next step is for the DfT to develop a detailed technical specification of spaceport requirements, prior to inviting proposals.
This is due to be published later this year.
