Gatwick runway opponents march through Horsham

More than 100 people marched through Horsham town centre on Saturday, May 3, to protest against a new runway at Gatwick Airport and new flight paths.

Communities Against Gatwick Noise Emissions (CAGNE), with the help of Gatwick Area Conservation Campaign (GACC) and Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) Sussex, organised a walk through Horsham town center to Drill Hall where the Gatwick Airport new runway consultation was taking place.

Chair of CAGNE, Sally Pavey said: “A real mix of ages walked and gathered on the steps of Drill Hall before going in to ask questions about new flight paths, lack of infrastructure, mass house building to accommodate inward migrating workers to fill jobs, removal of woodlands and floodplains being built on, road congestion and the emissions from the road and sky.”

The deadline for the public consultation is Friday, May 16. Response can be made at www.gatwickairport.com/consultation.
