Airports Commision Consultation Document
The Airports Commission has just published its consultation on the three options it has shortlisted for increasing the UK’s long-term aviation capacity. The consultation is open until the 3rd of February and seeks views on the three options for a new runway in the south east of England, and on its assessments of these options. In particular, the Commission wishes to:
  • test the evidence base it has assembled
  • understand stakeholders’ views as to the accuracy, relevance and breadth of the assessments it has undertaken
  • seek views on the potential conclusions that might be drawn from them.
They are also interested in evidence and ideas about improving the short-listed options (e.g. through mitigation measures to address specific impacts).

LAANC will be responding to the consultation after its Meeting on 23rd January 2015.
