2nd Update on the Edinburgh Airspace Change Proposal
From Edinburgh Airport
Whilst we continue to work with NATS and the CAA to clarify the points raised, we have now published our Rationale Document explaining what we have proposed and why.
Our Airspace Change Proposal responds directly to what we learned during the two periods of consultation and the many voices that participated have influenced our thinking and indeed the choices we have had to make. It is no exaggeration to say that our submission is a collective work. We have actively listened and have been grateful for the levels of engagement we’ve received. Every submission has been read, assessed and considered as part of our proposal design.
Throughout the programme our task has been to make a case – a case based on balancing our communities’ requirements, our operational requirements and the requirements of our regulator. I hope that you recognise our striving for balance and that the consultations undertaken have formed a critical part of our thinking.
Based on feedback received during consultation we have also commissioned an Environmental Assessment which addresses environmental issues such as noise and air quality as well as a tranquillity and visual intrusion study, a health impact assessment and an equalities impact assessment.
You can read more about our proposal and our Environmental Assessment on our website www.letsgofurther.com
I hope that you find these reports useful and would like to thank you again for your engagement with our programme to date.
