Heathrow yet to consider net zero implications on expansion

Heathrow Airport has opened consultation on the details of its plan for a third runway and connected infrastructure, but the consultation has not sought to reflect proposals for a net zero target for carbon emissions for 2050 as it is not yet adopted UK policy.

The plans, published today, cover the construction of the runway and associated infrastructure up to 2050, their layout, road access and associated infrastructure. Environmental impacts such as noise, air quality and climate change are discussed, as are plans to realign waterways and build new green spaces.

The statutory consultation will inform the delivery of an environmental impact assessment and application for a development consent order, which is due next year. More basic plans were opened for public input early last year.
