Gatwick Master Plan Announced – 30% flight increase target

On 18th October Gatwick released its draft Master Plan detailing its growth plans for the next 15 years.  Their plans are ambitious and are targeting a 30% increase in flights and a 40% increase in passenger numbers by 2028These plans are underpinned by three key strategies – increased use of the present runway, developing the standby runway for regular use, and building a third operational runway.  Each of these has significant implications for our communities

Gatwick’s Master Plan and the 12 week consultation programme can be accessed here:
