Our Sustainable Development Plan (SDP) is an important document for our airport. It sets out how the airport will grow in a responsible and sustainable way to make more efficient use of its existing runway.
M.A.G’s vision is to grow Stansted to better serve the region, including attracting a wider range of airlines and new routes, particularly to the USA and Middle East – this is vital to sustain prosperity and create jobs and investment in our region. The plan looks at ways to make efficient use of our current single runway, develop and improve surface access links and strengthen our community engagement programme while at the same time being mindful of the environmental impacts, ensuring we strike the right balance between growth and sustainability.
A draft version of our Sustainable Development Plan was released and consulted on widely over Autumn/Winter 2014. We have now produced a final version of this plan, which is split into 5 separate documents. The final versions of these are available to download by clicking the following links:
We consulted over a draft version of this plan in 2014, talking to local people, businesses, local authorities, MPs and other bodies or those who expressed interest. We also held 10 events in the local area which were open to the public to find out more, ask questions to members of airport staff and discuss our draft version of the plan in further detail.
We were pleased to receive feedback via both email, written letters and our ipad surveys which have helped us to shape and improve our draft plan, in order to now share our final version.
M.A.G must plan for the future, ensuring passengers and businesses have the transport infrastructure and connectivity to compete and grow – including making the most of the infrastructure we already have on site.
We believe growth to 40-45 million passengers on the single runway can be achieved within the current boundary, without major changes to our infrastructure and within existing environmental limits, supporting the UK’s growth ambitions in the most cost effective and sustainable way possible.
