We have yet to take decisions on the timetable for preparing a national policy statement (NPS) on airports, but it is expected to be published in draft by 2011. The draft NPS will then be subject to public consultation and parliamentary scrutiny as set out in the Planning Act 2008 before it can be formally designated.
