Greg Responds to Proposed Gatwick Action Plan

Greg and MPs representing neighbouring communities disturbed by aircraft landing at Gatwick Airport have issued a joint statement in response to Gatwick's Proposed Action Plan, which follows the conclusion of the recent Independent Review of Arrivals.

Gatwick have stated that they accept all twenty-three recommendations in the Independent Review which, if fully implemented, could see a significant reduction in the disturbance experienced by residents of Tunbridge Wells and the neighbouring villages.

Greg has been joined by the MPs for Sevenoaks, Tonbridge & Malling and Wealden in saying:

"There is no doubt this is another significant step in the right direction and we are pleased that all the recommendations in the Independent Arrivals Review have been accepted by Gatwick.

"However, the fight is far from over and none of us will rest until these changes are made.

"In particular, terms such as 'minded to' and 'subject to further discussions' must not be get-outs from the clear recommendations.

"The four of us are united in our determination to see these proposals implemented without delay and we have asked to meet Gatwick Airport Limited, the CAA and NATS as soon as possible to press this case."

A further opportunity to influence the proposals has been provided with residents encouraged to email ArrivalsReview@gatwickairport.com before 16 May.
