star this property answer text <p>No such specific assessment has been made. The Government keeps under review all research carried out on the impacts of aircraft noise on health and sleep disturbance, including any effects on productivity, and would take this into account when considering the costs and benefits of any relevant policy or regulatory proposals.</p><p> </p><p>As part of the last review of night flying restrictions at Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted Airports, my Department commissioned the Civil Aviation Authority to undertake a review of literature on these impacts.

star this property answer text <p>Night flying restrictions set by the Government at Heathrow comprise a movement limit and a noise quota limit set for each summer and winter season. Up to 10% of unused movements or noise quota may be carried over to the next season. The limits apply to the period 23.30-06.00. There are additional restrictions on movements by the noisiest aircraft in the period 23.00-07.00. None of these restrictions was breached between 2012-2014.</p><p> </p><p>In addition the Government sets departure noise limits which include lower limits at night. Infringements of these limits are reported in Heathrow’s Flight Performance Reports published on its website, the latest of which covers the period up to the end of September 2014.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>In developing the route alignment for HS2 Phase One a wide variety of suggestions have been considered from many different sources, including the Community Forums. The main local alternatives considered are described in the Environmental Statement published in November 2013. These can be found in section 2.6 in each of the Volume 2 Community Forum area reports. Given the scale of suggestions received it would not be possible or practical to identify those changes that are a direct result of the Community Forums alone.</p> more like this

The subsequent consultation allowed the public to comment on its content and issues contained in the responses received were included in the report by Parliament’s Independent Assessor, which was laid in the House of Commons on 9 April 2014. Where new information has become available through consultation responses that might give rise to new likely significant effects, these effects will be brought before Parliament through a Supplementary Environmental Statement in accordance with the Standing Orders of the House.</p> more like this
