Detail of outcome
Response to the ‘Legislation for enforcing the development of airspace change proposals’ section, annex A of the consultation document, of the ‘Aviation 2050 – the future of UK aviation’ consultation. This is not the final outcome of the ‘Aviation 2050 – the future of UK aviation’ consultation, which will be added when completed. The response concludes that the government intends to:
- to take forward new powers for the Secretary of State (delegable to the CAA) to direct that airspace change proposals are taken forward by airports or other relevant bodies
- take forward its sanctions and penalties regime proposal
- give the CAA the responsibility for enforcing the sanctions and penalties regime
The response includes an impact assessment on ‘Enforcing the development of airspace change proposals’.
Sixty-six consultation responses were received relating to the ‘Legislation for enforcing the development of airspace change proposals’ section.
The Department for Transport is seeking feedback on its green paper which outlines proposals for a new aviation strategy. The strategy will set out the challenges and opportunities for aviation to 2050 and beyond and will emphasise the significance of aviation to the UK economy and regional growth.
The strategy will focus on:
- developing a partnership for sustainable growth which meets rising passenger demand, balanced with action to reduce environmental and community impacts
- improving the passenger experience, including through technology and innovation, a new passenger charter and action to reduce delays at the border
- building on the UK’s success to establish new connections across the world and create greater choice for consumers
