It’s time for Gatwick – the right decision on airport expansion

Sponsored post.

With the election decided, the Airports Commission – appointed by the Government to come up with a solution to the need for more runway capacity in the South East – will now be finalising its recommendation on where the UK’s next runway should be built.

Before it is a straight choice between Gatwick and Heathrow for one new runway by 2030. After decades of delays, Britain needs a decision – and it must be the right one. Gatwick can build a new runway much faster with minimal disruption, less environmental impact and without requiring any funding from the taxpayer.

We all want the economy to expand but today more than ever we have to balance growth with the impact it has on the environment. No longer can we bulldoze our way to growth and disregard the views of the nearly one million Londoners who would be impacted by noise if Heathrow expands.

A new runway at Gatwick can deliver the economic benefits the country needs at a fraction of the environmental and financial cost of Heathrow.

Gatwick’s plan provides the Airports Commission and the Government with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to solve the issue of airport capacity for the generations to come.
