Alongside the publication of the Draft Airports National Policy Statement on 2 February 2017, the Department also published an Appraisal of Sustainability and Health Impact Analysis. The Department’s strategic assessment of the potential impacts of a new runway at Heathrow on health are set out in those documents.

Should the revised draft Airports National Policy Statement be designated, then it would be for the scheme promoter to undertake a detailed assessment of health impacts, and put forward an appropriate package of mitigation measures.
