The CAA has launched a new airspace change portal to ‘help ensure that the revised process, announced in December 2017, is fair, transparent, comprehensible and proportionate’.
The new portal can be accessed at by clicking here.
The CAA says this is an interim solution, using existing online tools to enable transparent consultation on new proposals, while it develops a purpose-built, long-term solution. ‘As set out in Airspace Design: guidance on the regulatory process for changing airspace design including community engagement requirements (CAP 1616), airspace change sponsors will be required to use this portal to make available all material relating to any new airspace change proposal, including consultation documents, responses, and decisions made by the CAA,’ it says.
‘The portal will be used to engage with stakeholders, including local communities potentially affected by an airspace change, and to seek their feedback during the process.
