Gatwick Area Conservation Campaign (GACC)

A recent Press Release from GACC states that Business organisations and the national press have castigated the Government for the delay in putting forward ideas on where new runways should be built or how the UK can maintain its hub airport status. According to GACC there are currently plenty of slots available at Gatwick and Stansted, and the London airports will not be full until 2030, or well beyond then if the recession continues or oil prices rise. GACC has said that there is no space for a new runway – or at least not one that could operate efficiently – let alone space for a large hub airport and that the company owning Gatwick has expressed doubts about investing in a multi-billion pound runway project with an uncertain commercial return. Please see for the full statement.
