At the Gatwick Area Conservation Campaign, we have announced a new structure to better use the strengths of our committee.

The aim is to be more agile and responsive in our work to counter the threat from Gatwick Airport and its master plan for a three-runway airport.

I am the first female chairman and honoured to be entrusted with the role at a time when GACC seeks to fight Gatwick’s master plan.

The GACC committee is poised to use its combined forces of knowledge, expertise and sheer determination to challenge Gatwick’s master plan.

We encourage residents to make sure their nominal membership fees are up to date to ensure and they are on the GACC mailing list.

This is a key way to keep communities of Sussex, Surrey and Kent informed of important developments concerning Gatwick and airspace changes.

I live in Smallfield and therefore know what it is like to endure aircraft noise and the ramifications of the airport on our roads and railways.

So I would encourage you, as local people, to take advantage of opportunities to help maximise the impact of GACC, by getting involved so as to minimise the impact that Gatwick Airport has on you and your life.

If you are inspired to join the committee, please get in touch for an informal conversation.
