News: Gatwick Consultation re Master Plan

Posted on 8th November 2018

Dear Peter

 

You will be aware that Gatwick Airport Ltd has recently launched a new Draft Master Plan to support growth of the Airport across the next 5 years and then rolling out to 15 years.

 

The Draft Plan sets out three growth scenarios and includes detail on how it will address infrastructure, the economy, the environment and the passenger experience.

 

The three scenarios are:

  1. Utilising the single runway, growing through use of technology, larger aircraft and more intensive operations
  2. Utilising the existing standby runway within the existing land footprint
  3. Continuing to safeguard land for an additional wide space runway, if Government Policy requires it

 

There is a Consultation on the Draft Plan through to 10th January 2019 with an online form to complete.  This 12-page Summary of the Draft Master Plan summarises the key elements.

 

It would be very helpful if you could share this with the members of the Association and, if appropriate, you could respond to the Consultation on behalf of your organisation.

 

Along with a member of the Gatwick Airport Team, I would be happy to meet with you to discuss this further; I have now been engaged by Gatwick to gain business support through the Consultation Period for the Master Plan.

 

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

 

All the very best

 

Jeremy

"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."

"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"
