Gatwick Airport Masterplan Consultation Launched

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

The Consultation on the Draft Plan will run until the 10th January 2019 with an online form to complete.  This 12-page Summary of the Draft Master Plan summarises the key elements.
