Gatwick Northern Runway Project

Gatwick have set out revised plans to bring their existing Emergency Runway into regular use alongside their Main Runway.

Regular use of this additional 'Northern' runway could allow Gatwick to serve 75 million passengers a year by 2038 although this development contradicts Government Climate Change plans over this period. Other elements of their plans include changed highway access to allow increased vehicle movements.

We objected to the previous plans to utilise the emergency runway in this manner and were pleased to see those Gatwick plans were rejected. This appears to be a modified attempt to achieve the same objective  and we shall be raising similar objections.

You can raise your own objections in any of the following ways                                   (deadline is 27th July 2022):
