Details

These reports support the air quality analysis in the consultation on the Airport Commission’s shortlisted options for additional airport capacity.

The ‘Baseline’ report looks at expected developments in air quality over a 60 year period in the vicinity of Heathrow and Gatwick. It considers:

  • airport operations
  • airport surface access
  • background users of surface access networks

on the basis of a ‘do minimum’ scenario with no airport expansion.

The ‘National and local assessment’ report examines the air quality implications of schemes at a local and national level, across a 60 year period.
