Solidarity Transport Hub Poland (STH) is issuing an invitation for stakeholders to declare their participation in the process of consulting strategic requirements for the planned “Solidarity” airport. The invitation as well as the whole consultation process will be based on following Terms of Reference.
Purpose, scope, final product
STH begins the process of consulting strategic requirements for the infrastructure elements of the planned "Solidarity" airport. As a result of previous work, 125 infrastructure elements were identified, divided into 5 main categories - Airside, Landside, Airport Support Elements, Complementary, Blue-sky thinking.
The purpose of the consultation process is to verify and complete the initial requirements based on knowledge, professional assessment and experience of stakeholders.
The invitation is addressed to industry stakeholders conducting business activity or having expert knowledge in the scope subject to consultation.
The scope of the consultation process is defined. A common template with strictly defined structure, scope of information and level of detail has been prepared for each of the 125 airport infrastructure elements. Stakeholders will be able to submit comments, changes and additions to the entire content of the Strategic Brief in all parts falling within the competence scope appropriate for individual stakeholders. Comments will be submitted electronically using the form prepared by STH via the provided link.
The result of the consultation will be the Strategic Brief for the airport, constituting the basis for the development of the Detailed Brief for the purposes of work on the Master Plan of the airport.
The whole process is advisory. Comments submitted may or may not be included in the further stage of works. The STH's priority is to take into account representative requirements for all categories of stakeholders, but it cannot be ruled out that some compromises will be necessary.
STRATEGIC BRIEF CONSULTATION PROCESS
The following scheme presents a flowchart of the Strategic Brief consultation process. The particular stages of the process are described below.

The said documents should be made available in Polish or English language- in case of required translation, sworn translation is preferred.
Signing the NDA and provision thereof in a form of scanned copy (which results in a commitment not to make any of conceptual, study, pre-design, design documentation or any other information directly or indirectly connected with the STH consultation process available to third parties without previous authorization by the STH) is a necessary condition for registration. Without the executed NDA document your participation in the consultation process will not be allowed.
