Search Legislation

Policing and Crime Act 2009

Paragraph 14 of Schedule 6: Transitional Provision

508.Under the existing terms of the ASA, there are presently nine aerodromes ‘designated’ for policing purposes. Aerodrome managers at these aerodromes are already required to pay for qualifying police services provided in respect of their aerodromes, and PSAs are therefore already in place. This paragraph ensures that the existing requirement for such airports to have PSAs will continue to apply until such time as the new requirement in section 25B(1) (as amended by the Act) takes effect. This paragraph also ensures that any existing PSAs will cease to have effect immediately before the new requirement takes effect. In practical terms, this means that new PSAs will be introduced once the new ASPs are in place. Until such time as ASPs are agreed and new PSAs are required, the existing requirement for designated airports to have a PSA will continue to apply.

Impact Assessments

Impact Assessments generally accompany all UK Government interventions of a regulatory nature that affect the private sector, civil society organisations and public services. They apply regardless of whether the regulation originates from a domestic or international source and can accompany primary (Acts etc) and secondary legislation (SIs). An Impact Assessment allows those with an interest in the policy area to understand:

  • Why the government is proposing to intervene;
  • The main options the government is considering, and which one is preferred;
  • How and to what extent new policies may impact on them; and,
  • The estimated costs and benefits of proposed measures.
