Birmingham Airport Inland Border Facility

Birmingham Airport Inland Border Facility

All properties and landowners within a 2km radius of Car Park 6 at Birmingham Airport are being contacted by letter about the HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) plans for the use of Car Park as an inland border facility.

The site would act as an office for starting and ending transit movements of goods to and from the UK. It would include parking areas for Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGV) and other vehicles as well as security measures and facilities to enable the checking of vehicles and goods entering and exiting the site.

HMRC’s proposed use of the site will require special planning approval, which the Government is seeking under the requirements of a Special Development Order (SDO).

Planning approval will be considered directly by the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government. It will not be determined by Solihull Council. Instead the Council will be a consultee to this application.

The initial period of consultation will run between 16 and 30 October 2020.

All comments, concerns and inquiries should be directed to HMRC through the Inland Border Facilities website.
