The people of St Helena have been consulted extensively over the last 10 years about the construction of an airport. The first referendum on the subject took place in January 2002 when 71.6% of respondents voted in favour of an airport. Focus meetings were held in community centres around the island in 2006. In 2009 a formal public consultation was held. The outcome of this consultation mirrored the 2002 referendum, with very strong majority support for an airport.
