Policy statement on recovery of Heathrow new runway costs

CAP 1513 sets out our policy in relation to the recovery of costs associated with obtaining planning permission for the new runway and capacity expansion at Heathrow Airport.

This policy statement is complementary to our decision to modify Heathrow Airport Limited’s (HAL’s) licence to permit up to £10 million per year of efficient Category B costs to be recovered. It deals with Category B costs that are in addition to the £10 million of efficient costs already allowed for in HAL’s licence modification.
