One of the most strategically important and nationally significant locations within the Sheffield City Region

Our role 

  • Doncaster Sheffield Airport (DSA) is one of the newest and fastest growing regional airports in the UK. It represents a significant economic asset for Doncaster, the Sheffield region and beyond.
  • Its draft Master Plan seeks to transform the regional airport into a major intercontinental gateway and a significant mixed-use growth area (GatewayEast), which will include the provision of new airside and landside commercial development, housing, hotels, retail and community facilities.
  • We have been advising Peel / DSA both through the planning application process and promoting GatewayEast through the emerging Doncaster Local Plan.
  • We provided Sustainability services for the project, alongside strategic communications advice in respect of the wider consultation of the draft Master Plan.


  • The emerging Doncaster Local Plan now fully supports the growth of the airport and its associated employment areas, housing and central plaza through a strategic policy and specific allocations.
  • Outline planning permission has been secured for the development of c.3.5 million sq ft of B1c / B2 / B8 floorspace for logistics, advanced manufacturing and research alongside the airport.
  • A planning application has recently been submitted for the central plaza which will include retail, leisure, commercial and community facilities.
  • GatewayEast will generate significant economic and employment benefits for the local area and wider region, including major new jobs during the construction and operational stages. GatewayEast is predicted to deliver over 10,000 jobs through the plan period and beyond.
  • Site area: 86 ha
  • Floorspace: 3,500,000 sq ft
