CPRE Sussex objects to Gatwick expansion

31st October 2023

CPRE Sussex’s comments in response to the request to register an interest in the public inquiry cover climate change and local environmental and economic issues.

The application proposes, in reality, a new second runway for Gatwick Airport. This is contrary to the policies set out in the Airports National Policy Statement.

The proposal, if built, is unsustainable as it would degrade the quality of the environment and have harmful and damaging impacts on the countryside of Sussex and the health and wellbeing of the people of Sussex.
