Airport calls on ‘everyone to have their say”

Published on : Tuesday, April 4, 2017

Edinburgh AirportEdinburgh Airport has today thanked thousands of people who have responded to the second stage of public consultation on airspace change – and is now calling on others to offer their response too as the consultation enters into its final period.

The consultation is seeking views on preferred flight paths in the airspace surrounding the airport to allow for maximum operational benefits whilst minimising the impact on local communities.

This second stage of public consultation was launched on Monday 30th January and the responses and findings will be presented to the Civil Aviation Authority.Due to the interest from communities and a call for meetings towards the end the consultation period the airport has today decided to continue taking consultation responses for an additional week in May.

Commenting, Edinburgh Airport’s Chief Executive Gordon Dewar, said:

“We are greatly encouraged by the consultation response; the vibrant process is going well with a high level of quantity and quality of the responses.“By the end of this stage of the consultation we will have attended more than 20 meetings in communities across West Lothian, Fife and Edinburgh. This has been a valuable listening exercise for us as well as giving us an opportunity to share information with our neighbouring communities.

“By continuing to raise awareness we will enable even more people to respond which will give us an even clearer understanding of the views from all those with an interest in this issue.

“We are absolutely committed to delivering a robust consultation process and have invited community councils to work with us to ensure that our consultation methods enable local people to participate.

“It is for this reason that we will be accommodating more meetings towards the end of the month and we are happy to confirm today that the consultation will continue accepting responses for an additional week in May.
