Airspace change masterplan: scoping the environmental assessments

To ensure that environmental impact considerations are integrated into the development of the airspace change masterplan, the UK Civil Aviation Authority must ensure that the masterplan is subject to a strategic environmental assessment (SEA) and a Habitats Regulations assessment (HRA). These assessments are a legal requirement.

The first stage of each of these assessments is to decide what they must cover, including the approach we propose to use. You can give us your views via our consultation on our dedicated webpage. The consultation closes on 8 May 2023.

The masterplan is being developed by the Airspace Change Organising Group to coordinate the airspace changes that will upgrade and modernise UK airspace at a system level.SW2023/063
