answer text <p>By setting long term ambitions for 2040 and 2050, the Government has sent a clear signal for the UK’s direction of travel to provide industry and consumers with certainty on the transition to zero emission vehicles. The Government’s Road to Zero strategy, published in July, set out that by 2030 we want to see at least 50% and as many as 70% of new car sales being ultra low emission, alongside up to 40% of new vans. We expect this transition to be industry and consumer led, supported in the coming years by the measures set out in the Road to Zero strategy.</p><p> </p><p>There is significant uncertainty over some of the key drivers of the transition – including battery technology and new mobility services. The Government will be actively tracking market developments, looking at key factors such as uptake of Ultra Low Emission Vehicles, deployment of infrastructure, and consumer issues. We will review momentum towards our ambition by 2025, and will consider what interventions are needed if not enough progress is being made.</p>

answer text <p>The Secretary of State has set out a clear expectation that airport charges should remain close to 2016 levels under expansion, and Heathrow Airport Limited has stated that it will seek to meet this challenge. The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) also confirmed in April 2018 that there are credible scenarios in which landing charges could remain close to 2016 levels in real terms.</p><p>As the scheme design and regulatory framework continue to develop, the CAA will scrutinise all proposals for expansion to ensure that, in line with its primary duty, they are in the best interest of the consumer. The CAA has confirmed that this could include a small increase in airport charges if that was required to unlock the wider consumer benefits of expansion.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p>The Appraisal of Sustainability that accompanies the Airports National Policy Statement (NPS) provides a strategic level assessment of the potential social, economic, and environmental impacts of expansion, including on noise. The Appraisal of Sustainability makes it clear that for the purposes of this strategic level assessment, it would not be suitable to produce noise contours and therefore estimate numbers of people affected below 54dB LAeq, 16 hour for the daytime or 48 dB LAeq, 8 hours for the night time. This is because variability in aircraft position in the air at these greater distances from the airport, and airport noise being closer to background noise levels, result in a lower level of certainty.</p><p> </p><p>The Airports NPS sets out specific mitigations for aircraft noise that the Government expects to see delivered. These include the applicant putting forward plans for a noise envelope which is tailored to local priorities and includes noise performance targets. The applicant will also need to develop plans for a runway alternation scheme that provides communities affected with predictable periods of respite. The Government also expects a ban on scheduled night flights for a period of six and a half hours.</p><p> </p><p>These supporting measures will be finalised through the planning process and subject to public consultation. These will then be considered by the Planning Inspectorate and the Secretary of State in determining an application for development consent.</p><p> </p><p> </p>
