Home > News > Heathrow expansion plans pass Labour…

Former Shadow Transport Spokesman Michael Dugher set out four tests the Labour Party would use to assess the Airports Commission’s recommendation. The new Labour Transport team have confirmed the “four tests” will be used as part of the party’s review of airports policy. Below is the Airports Commission in its own words on each of the four tests that confirm Heathrow passes them all.

 

1. Robust and convincing evidence is provided that the required increased aviation capacity will be delivered with Sir Howard Davies’ recommendation.

“Heathrow is operating at capacity, and Gatwick is quickly approaching the same point. There is still spare capacity elsewhere in the South East for point-to-point and especially low-cost flights, but with no availability at its main hub airport London is beginning to find that new routes to important long-haul destinations are set up elsewhere in Europe rather than in the UK.”

“Other UK airports are increasingly squeezed out of Heathrow, with passengers from the nations and regions obliged to transfer through other European airports, or Middle Eastern hubs. That costs them time and money, and is off-putting to inward investors.(1)”

“We have concluded that the best answer is to expand Heathrow’s runway capacity. A brand new airport in the Thames Estuary, while appealing in theory, is unfeasibly expensive, highly problematic in environmental terms and would be hugely disruptive for many businesses and communities.

“Gatwick, by contrast, has presented a plausible case for expansion. It is well placed to cater for growth in intra-European leisure flying, but is unlikely to provide as much of the type of capacity which is most urgently required: long‑haul destinations in new markets. Heathrow can provide that capacity most easily and quickly.(2)”

“Overall, the analysis suggests that the strongest benefits for the UK economy are likely to come from focusing capacity where demand is strongest: be that from freight users, leisure passengers, business travellers or the international transfer passengers needed to support a dense long-haul network. In each case, the highest levels of demand are seen at Heathrow.(3)”

2. The recommended expansion in capacity can go hand-in-hand with efforts to reduce CO2 emissions from aviation and allow us to meet our legal climate change obligations

The Airports Commission confirms expansion is compatible with the UK government’s target of 37.5MtCO2 emissions from aviation by 2050. This aligns with the opinion of the independent Committee on Climate Change which has confirmed a 60% growth in passengers is consistent with meeting the UK’s climate change targets.

The Commission’s report said ‘Heathrow’s location and its much greater public-transport connectivity (both locally and to the country as a whole) makes it the most efficient location in terms of carbon emissions due to surface access.(4)’

“The new capacity provided by an additional runway would alleviate the constraints on the route network and provide the users of aviation with the connectivity that they need for years to come. An additional runway could deliver significant benefits for the UK without breaching the UK’s climate change commitments or requiring aviation emissions to exceed the planning assumption set by the CCC.(5)”

“None of the schemes materially alter the likelihood of the UK exceeding the National Emissions Ceilings and the Gothenburg targets.(6)”

3. Local noise and environmental impacts have been adequately considered and will be managed and minimised.

“The Commission’s conclusion is that the environmental impacts of expansion at Heathrow, once effective mitigations and generous provision for compensation are in place, do not outweigh its very significant national and local benefits.(7)”

“In our Final Report, we acknowledge the air quality challenges facing the UK… Our analysis demonstrates, however, that the impacts of expansion at Heathrow would be a manageable part of this broader issue, which we believe the Government can feasibly devise and implement appropriate measures to address. In our view, therefore, limited weight should be placed on the suggestion that air quality represents a significant obstacle to expansion.(8)”

“Over the coming decades the noise impacts of Heathrow are forecast to reduce significantly, as new and quieter aircraft come into service and as flight paths are redesigned and improved. With expansion, the overall number of flights would grow, but new approach and departure paths could enable the noise impacts to be dispersed more widely, limiting the impacts on any individual community.(9)”

“Any effective solution must also take account of the interests of those individuals and communities around Heathrow who are not opposed to expansion. Alongside the hostility to a third runway, the Commission’s national consultation has demonstrated that there is also substantial support at the local level, which recognises the economic and employment opportunities that expansion would create.(10)”

4. Benefits of expansion will be felt in every corner of the country, not just the South East of England, and that regional airports will be supported too.

“The economic impacts of expansion at Heathrow would be felt throughout the UK… It shows that the effects of expansion would be felt most strongly in the air passenger and freight sectors, but with increases in economic activity also seen across the country in other sectors with international linkages, such as manufacturing and accommodation and food services.

“In total, the analysis indicates that around 60% of the overall boost to GDP would be focused on areas of the UK outside the South East of England.(11)”

“Regional stakeholders have been clear in their representations to the Commission that while links to overseas hubs are highly valued, they are not considered a substitute for access to Heathrow.(12)”

“Access to international connectivity will also be important in supporting regional economic growth, in line with the Government’s evolving policy to create a Northern Powerhouse. The links to HS2 at Old Oak Common and to the Great Western Main Line at Reading will help to ensure that the benefits of expansion at Heathrow are felt across the English regions.”

“In addition, for nations and regions where domestic air connections to London remain crucial, such as Scotland and Northern Ireland, expansion will create space at the airport for increased frequencies and new links.(13)”

“Expansion at Heathrow would enhance connections between the UK regions and London and its associated onward connectivity, reversing the trend of declining links between London and the rest of the UK witnessed in recent decades.(14)”

Response from Heathrow CEO John Holland-Kaye

Heathrow CEO John Holland-Kaye welcomed the Labour stance today, citing the airport’s thorough, new approach, to expansion as proof it is the right option.

“The Airports Commission’s analysis clearly shows that Heathrow can pass the four tests the Labour Party would use to assess the Government’s response to the Airports Commission’s recommendation. Our new plans meet demand, are compliant with international carbon obligations, address local air quality and noise issues, and provide benefits to the whole country,”

“The Commission has backed a positive and ambitious vision for the whole of the UK Britain. We look forward to working with Labour to make it happen.” Heathrow CEO John Holland-Kaye

How does Heathrow air quality compare to the rest of London? A new map released by Heathrow showcases how air quality around the airport is already ahead of the rest of London, further supporting Airports Commission analysis that showed expansion could take place within limits.

Key points:

  • New map graphically shows areas immediately around the airport are meeting legal air quality limits now, but many locations elsewhere across London do not

  • Air quality around Heathrow has been improving over recent years and will continue to get better in the future, allowing for Heathrow to expand and not exceed air quality limits.

Heathrow Airport is not the London problem…

A new graphic released by Heathrow airport today using independent data clearly shows how road vehicles, and not emissions from operations on the airport, are the biggest contributor to air pollution in London.

The information is drawn from the independent nation-wide network of pollution monitors run by the Government and by local authorities and is visually shown in a new graphic that demonstrates widespread exceedences of air quality limits across Greater London, while the nine monitors within 1 km of Heathrow airport show air quality has been consistently within the limit for the last 8 years or more.

Road traffic the main issue…

The graphic shows only two monitors in the vicinity of Heathrow are in breach the air quality limits, both of which are beside major roads. The first, just within 2kms of the airport fence, is 35 metres from the M4 motorway, at which only 16% of the pollution comes from airport-related sources, while the other is beside a busy road junction in an urban centre, and the airport’s emissions are only 6% of its total.

Put another way, even if Heathrow were completely closed down immediately, there would still be exceedances at these two locations. The latest forecasts by Defra show that both of these monitors are expected to be compliant by 2020, five years ahead of areas of central London.

Put another way, even if Heathrow were completely closed down immediately, there would still be exceedances at these two locations. The latest forecasts by Defra show that both of these monitors are expected to be compliant by 2020, five years ahead of areas of central London.

This graphic is consistent with the conclusions of the Airports Commission, set up by the Prime Minister, which concluded Heathrow air quality in the future will be better than now. Following a £20 million, two and a half year detailed study of where the next runway should be, the Commission has confirmed a third runway at Heathrow can go ahead without breaching air quality legal limits, as long as the airport continues to implement its mitigation plans.

Heathrow’s excellent track record of improving air quality

The airport already has an excellent record of improving air quality, and have reduced annual emissions from airport activity by 16% over five years. Heathrow’s Blueprint for Reducing Emissions outlines a 10 point plan of tangible actions to reduce Heathrow’s emissions, including a commitment to turn every car or small van we own to electric by 2020.

Heathrow is already reducing emissions and improving air quality. Here’s a look at some of the improvements we’ve already made, and how this will continue with expansion.

Matt Gorman, Heathrow Director of Environment and Sustainability said this graphic highlights that road traffic is the real issue and that Heathrow is already working with partner’s to help improve conditions.

“Heathrow understands air quality is a real concern for local communities and it’s an issue London needs to tackle urgently. We have made it clear that Heathrow airport has and will continue to play its part. But this data shows that the real culprit of pollution in London is road traffic, so we need other partners to play their role,” Matt Gorman said.

“We’re working with partners like the Mayor’s office on a strategy to reduce emissions from non-airport related road-traffic which is the major cause of pollution in the Heathrow area.”

NOTES TO EDITORS:

1. The new graphic as well as information on Heathrow’s “Blueprint for Reducing Emissions” is available here: https://your.heathrow.com/airquality

2.Methodology: Data has been drawn from Defra, Kings College London and Ricardo during the five-year period of 2009–2013.At the time data for 2014 had not been fully ratified (checked by the equipment operators) and compiled. Since the original data collection was undertaken, more data for 2014 has been released so has been added to the dataset where available. The data capture threshold was set at 75% to balance the need for high quality data with having sufficient data to determine the trend at each site. It is the same threshold as used in the GLA’s 2014 comparison of London’s air quality with that in other cities around the world.

3. Air Quality Monitoring: Heathrow has a policy of full public disclosure of our expansion plans and we are committed to consulting closely with the public, local community, businesses, passengers, airport users and elected representatives to understand all the issues. All our air quality data is available publicly: http://www.heathrowairwatch.org.uk/data/

4. EU compliance and Heathrow Expansion: The Airports Commission’s independent analysis has confirmed that expansion at Heathrow will not delay compliance with EU limits.Our modelling shows that concentrations around the airport boundary are similar in both 2R (two runway) and 3R (three runway) cases. This is to be expected since, although the total aircraft emissions are greater in the 3R case, they are spread over a larger area and necessarily the level of activity per runway, taxiway or stand is no higher than it is now, since the airport is already at full capacity. Because concentrations drop off substantially over a distance of several hundred metres from the source, and as the airport is several kilometres across, the effect at the boundary is that concentrations are nearly independent of airport size. Concentrations of NO2 at the continuous monitoring stations around the airport are no more than 3 μg m−3 higher with the third runway than the 2R business-as-usual case.The Airports Commission made an important broader point about the nature of the air quality issue (ACFR paragraphs 14.110 & 14.112) that: “Tackling air quality is not, however, only the responsibility of the airport operator. Heathrow is situated close to the M25, M4 and other major roads and the majority of emissions in the area are caused by road traffic unrelated to the airport… The air quality issue around Heathrow is a manageable part of a wider problem, the underlying causes of which will need to be addressed by the Government.” This observation is supported by the fact that pollutant concentrations at the worst locations in the region of Heathrow (over 2km north of the airport) are predominantly due to non-airport traffic.

5. Mitigation measures: For the last 15 years, Heathrow Airport has maintained and implemented a series of action plans aimed at delivering improvements to air quality around the airport. These have contained a wide range of measures to reduce emissions, and we are continuing to implementing more.Current measures are described in our Blueprint For Reducing Emissions, which can be accessed here: https://your.heathrow.com/airquality.

An independent report published today shows a significant reduction in the area and number of homes affected by noise from Heathrow’s operations.

Key points:

  • Over the past 9 years, the area around the airport affected by higher levels of night noise has decreased by 25%
  • 25% fewer households affected by these noise levels at night than in 2006
  • Heathrow begins trialling steeper approaches this week, which could reduce noise for people living under flight paths

Analysis from the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), commissioned by Heathrow as part of their on-going Noise Action Plan commitments, shows that average noise contours annually are smaller than they have been since 2006.

The launch of the report comes on the first week of Heathrow’s Steeper Approaches trial, the UK’s first attempt to adopt this approach to reduce noise for people on the ground.

Becoming a better neighbour

Over the past 9 years, the area around the airport affected by higher levels of night noise (measured by 60dB Lnight), has decreased by 25%.

This has resulted in 25% fewer households affected by these noise levels at night. Had the population and households remained static during this period, there would be 42% fewer homes affected by these noise levels at night.

This has resulted in 25% fewer households affected by these noise levels at night. Had the population and households remained static during this period, there would be 42% fewer homes affected by these noise levels at night.

The area affected by average noise measurements over the course of a 24 hour operating day, as measured using the European measure of noise (55dB Lden), has shrunk by 14%.

That is equivalent to a decrease of 15% of homes affected by noise (or 18% if the population and households had remained static during this period).

Newer planes and quieter procedures

The use of new planes and quieter procedures between 2006 and 2014 are part of the measures driving the reductions in the noise footprint. To continue improvements, Heathrow has this week begun trialling steeper approaches for 6 months, in which aircraft fly higher for longer before landing at the airport.

Steeper approaches introduced at airports such as Frankfurt have shown this can reduce noise for people living under flight paths.

Continuing to improve

Although Heathrow’s noise footprint is smaller than it’s been at any time since the 1970s, the airport continues to work with airlines, regulators and local communities to make the skies around the airport even quieter.

Heathrow’s Noise Blueprint, a plan which outlines ten practical steps to cut noise by 2015 and challenges aircraft to be quieter, sooner, and ensure fewer people are affected by noise, even with an expanded airport.

2006 Vs 2014: How Heathrow’s noise footprint has reduced.

Heathrow Director for Sustainability and Environment Matt Gorman said the report shows that the airport’s innovative efforts to reduce noise are working, but that there is still more to do.

“Heathrow is at the forefront of international efforts to tackle aircraft noise and these latest contours are testament to the efforts of Heathrow and our airline and manufacturing partners to reduce the impact of the operations. But we won’t stop here,” Matt Gorman said.

“We know there’s more we can do through initiatives like our steeper approaches trial, and we will continue to push all those operating at Heathrow to be industry leaders in reducing noise.

“The Prime Minister’s Airports Commission has stated that at least 200,000 fewer people are expected to be within Heathrow’s noise footprint by the time an additional runway opens.”

“It endorsed Heathrow’s new approach to expansion, developed in consultation with residents, saying “an expanded Heathrow would be a better neighbour for local communities than the airport is today.”
