Aviation strategy for forum

Developing a UK aviation strategy, expansion at Heathrow and the future of airport capacity across the UK will be among subjects under discussion at a Westminster Business Forum in central London on Thursday 14 September.

Organised by Westminster Forum Projects, the event follows the consultation and review of the draft NPS and the consultation on the design and use of UK airspace, with delegates assessing the planning framework for future expansion and the policy priorities for sustainability in the aviation sector.

With the release of the Heathrow 2.0 sustainable expansion plan and the Airports Commission report calling for an effective air quality policy, 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 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.
