Local aircraft NOx levels set to almost quadruple by 2027

Southampton City Council’s Transport Policy team wrote in October 2018 (as part of its comments on the airport masterplan – page 5 para 2 see below):

“SCC is making significant effort to reduce emissions associated with road transport and this should not be viewed as an opportunity to generate further capacity for other sectors.”

Table 7.15 of the airport’s Environmental Statement shows sub-totals of airport source NOx emissions as 2018 (baseline): 83.57 tonnes/year; 2027 (future baseline) 91.36 tonnes; 2027 (with development): 320.96 tonnes.
