Gatwick: Future Flight Paths Consultation

There are less than two weeks left for people in Sussex and Surrey to have their say on Gatwick's future flight paths.

Thoughts could include thoughts around noise sensitive sites such as open areas prized for their quietness or noise sensitive industries – specifically any place which could be affected if aircraft were to fly directly over it.

Views are also wanted on how to balance CO2 with noise, as avoiding some places means flying longer routes that produce more CO2.

At low levels near Gatwick the solution may be to offer some sites ‘respite’ – periods when there will be no flights directly overhead. This could be at certain times of the day or days of the week

Airspace above the south of England is some of the busiest in the world

The consultation aims to find new routes offering the most benefit with the least possible impact on people and the environment.

The airport is currently being considered by the Davis commission for a second runway.
