Airspace Consultations

The Department for Transport (DfT) has recently launched two major public consultations

  • UK Airspace Policy: A framework for balanced decisions on the design and use of airspace·        
  • Draft Airports National Policy Statement: new runway capacity and infrastructure at airports in the South East of England

    The DfT will be holding a series of events across the country to enable you to hear about the consultations in more detail and provide you with the opportunity to speak to them, ask questions and obtain further information.  A typical event programme will last from 0945 to 1045 and consist of a Welcome Address followed by presentations on UK Airspace Policy and the Draft National Airports Policy after which an exhibition will be open until 1300 hours affording an opportunity to learn more about the policy, ask questions, and ensure the people you represent have the information they need to inform their responses to the consultation.  Interested parties were encouraged you to register if possible by 28 February so that numbers could be managed effectively.  However, if you haven’t heard about these briefings and feel you should attend then Registration details can be found at  To register, please enter your email address and this password: &36uSu$V
