The government’s preferred scheme for meeting the need for additional airport capacity in the south-east of England is a new north-west runway at Heathrow Airport.

The draft Airports National Policy Statement sets out:

  • the need for additional airport capacity in the south-east of England
  • why government believes that need is best met by a north-west runway at Heathrow Airport
  • the specific requirements that the applicant for a new north-west runway will need to meet to gain development consent
