Gatwick Airport

The issue of airplane noise on landing and take off has been a concern of many residents of the parish for several years. The Gatwick Area Conservation Campaign tries to protect the environment around Gatwick and keep it within it existing boundaries and ensuring while the airport becomes increasingly successful, there is a match by a steady reduction in noise and pollution. If you would like to learn more about the campaign please view a brief information sheet by visiting their website at

Gatwick Expansion Roadshow and Pop Up Events

CAGNE - Aviation Town and Parish Council Forum 

You, your council and your residents may be interested in these events: Throughout 2019, the Gatwick Airport management have been meeting specific departments of local authorities and members of parliament to discuss their plans to use the emergency runway as a second runway via the planning process of a Development Consent Order. They have not met with the public or parish and town councils; it would seem Gatwick do not intend to meet with residents until 2020. 

CAGNE, with the Gatwick Environment Group, is now providing residents with an opportunity to obtain facts about the Gatwick expansion plans and how they will impact local communities through aircraft noise, road and rail capacity, housing and amenities, and what Gatwick's planned growth will mean in additional release of greenhouse gases. 

Take part in the survey - "What do you think of the Gatwick Airport expansion plans?"
