CAA response to Step 1b

04/08/2021: The CAA is satisfied with the Change Sponsor's assessment of the contextual consideration and agrees the proposal can resume. However, until iteration two of the airspace change masterplan including the associated programme plan has been assessed and accepted by the CAA and Department for Transport as co-sponsors of airspace modernisation, a full indicative timeline cannot be agreed by the CAA for this airspace change proposal. An indicative timeline proforma will be published shortly setting out the agreed Stage 1 (Define) and Stage 2 (Develop & Assess) Gateways.

Potentially Affected Area

This is the area which may be affected by this airspace change depending on its development. This area may change as the proposal is developed.

Step 1b : Design Principles

This step has been started

During the Design Principles step, the sponsor develops the principles which will underpin their proposed options for the change. The design principles encompass the safety, environmental and operational criteria and strategic policy objectives that the change sponsor aims for in developing the airspace change proposal. They are developed through engagement with stakeholders and form a qualitative structure against which design options can be evaluated. Early engagement with stakeholders, optionally facilitated by a third party, may help to avoid disagreement later in the process.
