Gatwick Airport to Consult the Public on Second Runway

The Car Hire Gatwick Airport branch are pleased that the airport will be speaking to the public about the second runway plan.

It has been decided that Gatwick Airport will speak to the public on the options for a second runway. In the Interim Report which came out in December 2013, the Airports Commission included Gatwick Airport on its short list of potential locations for the next runway.

A spokesman for the airport said, “Gatwick recognises that its local communities will have many questions about what a second runway at Gatwick would mean for them, and is inviting them to participate in a six week public consultation starting on April 4. The consultation will provide further information on the three options Gatwick proposed to the Airports Commission in its initial submission last July, and will give people an opportunity to tell the airport what they think about these. People will be able to respond on-line via the airport website, in person at one of 16 public exhibitions, or by post.”

Gatwick Airport will provide the Airports Commission with the results of this consultation before in reports back to the Government in 2015.
