Airports: Public Participation

Volume 468: debated on Monday 26 November 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what consultations on airport development are planned; and what the expected date of each consultation is. (167912)

The Department is currently consulting on proposals to add capacity at Heathrow airport. This meets a commitment in the 2004 ‘Future of Air Transport’ White Paper, which was itself developed following wide consultation. The Department has no plans to consult on specific development proposals at other airports though individual airport operators will need to consult in accordance with planning requirements as and when they bring forward their proposals.
