Transport Committee

Airports National Policy Statement (NPS) inquiry

Inquiry status: open - accepting written submissions

Deadline for written submissions was Thursday 30 November 2017.


Scope of the inquiry

We are launching an inquiry into the revised proposal for an NPS tabled by the Government on 24 October. We will draw on the evidence submitted during the previous Transport Select Committee inquiry and there is no need for anyone to resubmit evidence previously submitted to our predecessors. However, the Committee welcomes further submissions from those that have previously submitted evidence or new submissions addressing the points set out above.

Submit your views

The Committee would like to receive submissions from stakeholders based on the latest round of consultation launched by the Government on the 24 October 2017. The Committee is particularly interested in receiving submissions on:

  •  Whether the revised passenger demand forecasts and air quality assessments have been satisfactorily completed and are represented accurately in the final version of the NPS and Appraisal of Sustainability; and
  • Whether any other changes to the NPS based on clarity intention and/or Government policy since February 2017 are suitable
