Prestbury Parish Council's Submission to the Consultation for the Civil Aviation Authority's PPR Proposals
During a review of its policy on airspace and noise the Government recognised that while changes to airspace design are subject to the airspace change process and are consulted on with relevant stakeholders, changes to air traffic control operational procedures could be implemented without consultation. Even if noise impacts were similar to those of a change in airspace design.
The Government has since given the Civil Aviation Authority, as airspace regulator, a decision-making role for a wholly new category of airspace change. This category is known as a planned and permanent redistribution of air traffic through changes in air traffic control operational procedure. Referred to as PPR for short.
Essentially a PPR concerns changes in the way existing airspace is used, rather than changes in the airspace design itself. Air traffic controllers are continuously making decisions as to how to control individual aircraft. The air traffic control operational procedures form a framework within which each air traffic controller makes those individual aircraft-by-aircraft decisions. Consequently the track over the ground taken by a given aircraft is a combined result of the airspace design, the air traffic control operational procedures and the individual expert decision of the air traffic controller on the day.
A consultation has taken place regarding the above. To view Prestbury Parish Council's response, please click here.
