By the end of 2020, NR plans to ban retailers from supplying plastic cutlery and cups, implement a coffee cup recycling scheme, and expand the roll-out of coffee ground recycling to all NR-managed stations.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

In addition, HAL has committed to deliver a programme of noise insulation and ventilation for schools and community buildings within the 60dB LAeq (16hr) contour.</p><p> </p><p>The geographical areas that the scheme could cover is dependent on flight paths for an expanded Heathrow Airport. Preparations for the airspace change process are complex and will take some years to work through.</p><p> </p><p>In considering the case for expansion the Department commissioned a review of strategies adopted by international airports to mitigate the impact of airports on residents. In considering the scheme proposed by HAL the review found the schemes to be comparable to those on offer in other countries.</p><p> </p><p> </p>
