In April 2017, Heathrow went out to the market for potential off-site construction sites and received 121 Expressions of Interest from across the UK. In November 2017 they published a longlist of 65 UK-wide sites and in the first half of 2018 they visited each of these 65 sites. Following the passing of the Airports National Policy Statement through Parliament in June last year they launched a Pre-Qualification Questionnaire for the Logistics Hubs in October 2018.
They have chosen eighteen sites from across the UK. These sites will now be invited to enter a formal tender process this Autumn, and to bid to host the final four Heathrow Logistics Hubs
