Gatwick Airport Consultation on using existing North Runway

Gatwick has announced that a public consultation will start on the 9 September 2021 on plans to bring its existing Northern Runway into routine use alongside its Main Runway.

The Civic Centre is holding the documentation for their consultation which commences on Thursday 9 September 2021 and closes on Wednesday 1 December 2021. The consultation is focused on the Gatwick Northern Runway.

The Northern Runway Project proposes to make alterations to the existing northern runway, which along with lifting the current restrictions would enable dual runway operations; allowing all arrivals to continue to use the existing main runway, shared departures between the existing main runway and the northern runway and controlled dependency between the two runways to enable safe crossing of the northern runway by arrivals.

In the Civic Centre the following documents will be available:1x Preliminary Environmental Information Report (This is a large document that will be available on request only.)

  • 1x Consultation Overview Document
  • 100x Consultation Summary Document
  • 1x Statement of Community Consultation
  • 100x Consultation questionnaires
  • 1x Economic Impact Assessment
  • 1x Noise Insulation Scheme
  • 1x Outline Employment, Skills and Business Strategy
  • 1x Land Use and Construction Phasing Plans

There will also be a consultation event on Tuesday 12 October 2021 at the Uckfield Club from 6.00pm until 8.00pm.
