Details

The government’s new Air quality plan was published after the Airports Commission’s work was concluded. This study assesses the implications of the new plan and pollution climate mapping modelling on the conclusions of the Airports Commission’s air quality analysis. The study also includes a foreword which provides an initial qualitative review of the potential implications of more recent data on the conclusions of the re-analysis.

The policy ‘briefing note’ adds further detail on how airport expansion could be compatible with the government’s air quality obligations.
