THE ROLE OF LOCAL PLANNING AUTHORITIES IN RELATION TO THE SITING AND DEVELOPMENT OF AIRPORTS
Planning considerations are given for the siting of new airports and the development of control of existing airports. It is proposed that the decision making in siting new airports should be made at national and regional levels and that a national policy be adopted in this matter. Noise, urban development and growth, air route patterns, public participation in making local decisions, land safeguarding for future airport growth, and relations of airports and nearby countrysides are covered as airport siting factors. The main point of the discussion is the close interrelation between operational concern and environmental response which must be given prime consideration.
