Airport policy in the spotlight

Development of a new aviation strategy for the UK and a review of the draft National Policy Statement (NPS) on airport expansion will be subjects under the microscope at a special seminar in London on 14 September.

Organised by Westminster Forums, the gathering will have a keynote address from Heathrow director of expansion Emma Gilthorpe as delegates assess the planning framework for future expansion and the policy priorities for aviation sector sustainability.

With the release of the Heathrow 2.0 sustainable expansion plan and the Airports Commission report, sessions will focus on managing the impacts of expansion on air quality, local surface transport and the wider effects on communities throughout the implementation of an expanded Heathrow Airport.

With the seminar also taking place post the general election and in the context of the decision to leave the EU, those in attendance will discuss the implications on the future of UK airlines and airports operating within the ECAA.

Further sessions will look at the potential for further airport expansion in the South-East and more widely across the UK, and the potential benefits this will bring for trade, growth and future capacity.
