The Project for the Sustainable Development of Heathrow ('Project Heathrow' for short) takes forward the commitment made in the Government's White Paper The Future of Air Transport to examine how to make best use of Heathrow's existing two runways, and how a third runway could be added after a new runway at Stansted, whilst complying with strict conditions on air quality, noise and improved public transport access.

The project aims to reach a view about whether further development is likely to be consistent with the environmental conditions laid down in the White Paper. Our conclusions will not authorise or preclude development. If the conclusions suggest development is possible without breaching the prescribed conditions, it would remain for the airport operator - BAA - to apply for planning permission in the usual way.
