Following the publication of a redacted version of the Sponsor's final proposal, any stakeholder may submit a 'call-in' requesting that the final decision about changes to the design of UK airspace is made by the Secretary of State for Transport rather than the CAA.
Stakeholders can review the airport's proposal to assess whether or not it meets any of the call-in criteria. The 'call-in' for London Oxford Airport’s Airspace Change Proposal is open until 8 September 2020.

(*) The updated version of the London Oxford Airport Decision (CAP2087) and Environmental Assessment (published 16 March 2021) includes a minor correction to the AONB referenced in both documents. Reference to the nearest AONB has been amended to reflect that the nearest AONB is the Cotswolds, whose border is approximately 3 nm to the West of the airport. The change does not impact the outcome of the ACP and is a minor factual correction
