    The aviation industry plays a very important role in sustaining the UK’s economic growth and brings many with it many benefits. Aviation also causes numerous problems with the most notable being climate change. The demand for air travel is forecast to grow greatly over the next few decades and with this there come numerous problems. This research project specifically investigates the implications of expanding Stansted Airport from an economic, social and environmental perspective with a view to determine whether the proposed expansion in both forms would have a negative or positive effect on the South-East as a region. The logical order of the dissertation allows the reader to fully understand the processes which are being studied whilst learning the key contextual facts to support the argument. It was essential to collect both primary and secondary data in order to fulfil the aims and objectives of this research project. The dissertation comes to some interesting conclusions, with the most significant being that the environmental impacts of expansion will outweigh the economic benefits on a regional and national scale. It became evident that BAA also needed to improve their relationships with not only the airlines but also the local community.
