Gatwick airport expansion?

Gatwick Airport has just released a its “Draft Master Plan 2018“, which is out for consultation until 10th January 2019.

The airport is consulting on three scenarios:

  1. increasing capacity on its current runway
  2. using the standby/emergency runway in combination with the current runway
  3. safeguarding land to meet its long term ambition of an additional runway, in combination with the above.

This means that Gatwick could become a three runway airport.

Acording to CPRE (Council for the Protection of Rural England) “The impact of this on the Sussex countryside would be enormous,”
