This report supports the community analysis in the consultation on the Airport Commission’s shortlisted options for additional airport capacity.

This is the Airports Commission’s assessment of the impacts of each expansion option on the community in terms of:

  • loss of housing
  • access to community facilities and resources

Consideration is given to the extent that these impacts can be reduced.
