Airports: Public Safety Zones

Volume 477: debated on Thursday 12 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport pursuant to the answer of 22 May 2008, Official Report, column 425W, on airports: public safety zones, what factors will be taken into account in deciding the order in which the public safety zones will be reviewed under the phased review. (210723)

The principal factor in deciding the order of review of public safety zones will be the increase in total aircraft movements against the forecast figure provided when the current zones were established; airports showing the strongest growth will be the first reviewed.

It is likely that a small number of airports will be taken out of order to reflect local circumstances such as airport development.
