Man who holds key the to Gatwick Airport future visits local area

There will have been much speculation when the head of the Airports Commission visited an area close to the airport recently, in the views of the Gatwick Airport Easirent Car Hire depot

Crawley recently received a visit from the man who has the future of Gatwick Airport in his hands. Sir Howard Davies, the chairman of the Airports Commission was at the town hall on 9th July to meet with councillors and campaign groups. He heads a five person committee given the task of examining the need for additional runway capacity across the country and possible locations for airport expansion.

Among those who met with him at the town hall were Louise Goldsmith, leader of West Sussex County Council; Cllr Peter Smith, of Crawley Borough Council; Jeremy Taylor, chief executive of Gatwick Diamond Business; and members of the Gatwick Area Conservation Campaign, which is opposed to increased runway capacity anywhere.

There was discussion during the meeting about the possibility of Gatwick Airport not being selected for expansion. Cllr Goldsmith said “It would still have a role but we would have to think quite long and hard to see what we could do to support the local economy.”

His final report is due to be presented to the Government in the summer of 2015.
