The Airports Commission is seeking your views on 3 options for a new runway in the south east of England, and on its assessments of these options. In particular, the commission wishes to:

  • test the evidence base it has assembled
  • understand stakeholders’ views as to the accuracy, relevance and breadth of the assessments it has undertaken
  • seek views on the potential conclusions that might be drawn from them

The commission also welcome evidence and ideas about improving the short-listed options (eg through mitigation measures to address specific impacts).

The consultation consists of a large number of documents. This page features the commission’s overarching consultation document, a sustainability assessment and business case for each of the 3 schemes. Detailed technical reports which underpin the commission’s analysis have also been published, along with an index to help you navigate them.

Work submitted to the commission by the 3 scheme promoters; Gatwick Airport Limited, Heathrow Airport Limited and Heathrow Hub Limited has also been published.
