Prestwick, Scotland (Prestwick Spaceport PR) — South Ayrshire Council has started the process of submitting a formal planning application for the Prestwick Spaceport development.

The submission of the POAN follows the Council’s submission of an Environmental Impact Assessment Screening Report last year which confirms that Prestwick’s space ambitions will not result in any significant adverse effects to the environment.
