Petition to stop Gatwick Airport expansion

CPRE Sussex has launched a petition opposing plans for a second runway at Gatwick Airport.

Gatwick Airport wants to bring its ‘emergency’ runway into regular use. This will create a second runway and thousands of extra flights a year at huge cost to the Sussex countryside and its residents.

Gatwick Airport expansion makes achieving net zero targets almost impossible and taxpayers will be left footing the bill for cleaning up carbon emissions. A second runway will also lead to increased air and noise pollution, risking the health and wellbeing of residents.

Despite this, there has been limited meaningful consultation with the public.

CPRE Sussex is working in partnership with residents’ groups, including CAGNE, to oppose Gatwick Airport expansion, and will be making a formal submission to the upcoming inquiry.
