• The purpose of the PIR is for the CAA, as the independent regulator, to assess whether the change has delivered the anticipated impacts and benefits set out in the original airspace change proposal and decision, and if not to ascertain why and determine the most appropriate course of action.

      Data received from sponsor  2 Jun 2017

      The CAA is aiming to complete the PIR of Modules A, D and B by Christmas 2017 and will publish the results when that work is complete.  Thereafter, the CAA will complete the PIR of Modules C and E, after which we will publish the final outcome when that work is complete.

      While the LAMP Phase 1 A PIR is ongoing, the CAA has discovered a technical issue which requires further investigation with the relevant change sponsor. The publication of the final CAA analysis report for Modules A, B and D will therefore be delayed. At this stage, we anticipate the target for publication is 31 January 2018. In the meantime, we have advised the relevant sponsor to investigate the issue and advise us accordingly.  15 Dec 2017

      CAA PIR assessment  
      The CAA has now completed its technical assessment of Modules A, B & D of the LAMP 1A post implementation review. These concern the departure routes of London City, London Stansted and London Luton Airport to determine whether the changes implemented by those airports meet  the objectives of the initial airspace change proposals. We expect the review to be published shortly. 13 Jul 2018
