The Government have made clear their position on additional runways at London's three major airports and that their priority is therefore to create a sustainable framework for UK aviation, rather than produce a national policy statement for airports. This was set out in ‘Major infrastructure planning reform: Work plan’, published by the Department for Communities and Local Government in December 2010.

The Government issued a scoping document in March 2011 to inform the development of a sustainable framework for UK aviation which will be published for consultation in March 2012.
