UKLSL led the project, engaging with stakeholders and ensuring a shared vision throughout.

During our time on the project we were able to deliver the following:

  • A costed master plan to transform areas of the brownfield site to support spaceflight services.

  • Cost-benefit analysis.

  • Market study with the participation of almost 200 UK companies and a series of focus groups.

  • Environment & sustainability roadmap, including environmental risk and opportunities register, sustainability strategy, stakeholder engagement plan, socio-economic report and environmental management plan.

  • Promotional material and marketing video.
