GACC made a significant contribution to the formulation of the Government's new aviation policy.
When a delegation from GACC met the Minister for Aviation, Theresa Villiers, in April 2011 she told us that the Department for Transport (DfT) wished to hear a strong view from environmental groups, and that they were looking for ‘evidence-based responses’. GACC therefore submitted a full response backed up by 11 ‘GACC Evidence Papers’.
The Draft White Paper in March 2012 did contain a number of the policies proposed by GACC but in the end, as a result of lobbying by the aviation industry, the final Aviation Policy Framework White Paper was weak, toothless and verbose. See 'The Environment'.
