Gatwick airport has unveiled a draft Master Plan for ongoing development and sustainable growth at the airport into the early 2030s. The Plan shows how Gatwick is planning to do this, across three scenarios:
Using new technologies to increase capacity on Gatwick’s existing Main Runway;
A plan to bring the airport’s existing Standby Runway into routine use alongside the Main Runway;
Continuing to safeguard the land for an additional runway in the future, while not actively pursuing one now
A public consultation is live at https://www.gatwickairport.com/masterplan2018 and will include five public exhibitions in their local area. The Consultation closes at 5pm on 10th January 2019.
Increased air traffic will have an impact in the skies over Hadlow Down and therefore effect villagers. The Parish Council will be making a response to the consultation and would encourage villagers to respond as well.
