Aviation Environment Federation - Resources for Campaigners

Worried about an airport expansion? Wondering how to influence a planning decision? AEF has published an online handbook, Airports and Planning, which guides readers through all stages of the planning process and how to get involved.

The handbook - designed to give general readers an accessible overview of the environmental impacts of airports, as well as offering practical advice for campaigners - covers where to get information, how to respond to planning applications and public inquiries, and what you can do to influence national policy. Offering a complete revision of AEF's 1995 publication Aviation, the environment and planning law, the new guide outlines the latest developments in legislation and provides up-to-date information about environmental impacts.

Chapters can be downloaded for free from the planning section of their website.
