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

Testimonials

"“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”"

Bruce Millington, Manager
(Sutton Winson Ltd)

"As MP for Mid Sussex I believe passionately in the importance of a vibrant local business community in order to create and sustain fantastic opportunities that enable people to meet their responsibilities, prosper and fulfil their potential. I am committed to collaborating with BHBPA and others to be an effective collective voice for Burgess Hill."

Mims Davies MP, Member of Parliament for Mid Sussex

"“I have belonged to this group since I started my own business, Lea Graham Associates, in 1986. The association has been through several incarnations since then, but its most recent one, BHBPA, is by far the best.

It’s much more than just a networking group, although it is supremely good at that too. BHBPA is inclusive and friendly and acts like a mutual-support society. The events are stimulating, worthwhile and often great fun and I believe most members share this opinion.”"

Susan Fleet, Managing Director
(Lea Graham Associates)

"The BHBPA is an energetic and vocal organisation that connects and empowers and informs the local business community acting as an effective conduit to local authority and other organisations. We are proud to be part of that community and the association."
