Cranleigh, Gatwick & breakfast
This breakfast networking event takes place at Haywards at Hurtwood Park at 7.30am on Wednesday 14th October 2015.
Delegates at our event will be able to hear from Hannah Staunton, Community Management Manager at Gatwick Airport.
In 2012, the government established the Airports Commission to consider how the UK can “maintain its status as an international hub for aviation and immediate actions to improve the use of existing runway capacity in the next five years”.
The question of how to make best use of and expand airport capacity has become the UK’s most significant infrastructure issue over the last few years.
After three years of deliberation, the five person commission, chaired by economist Sir Howard Davies, reported its recommendations to government on 1st July. That recommendation was that a third runway should be built at Heathrow while Gatwick would also be a ‘plausible’ option.
The reasoning behind the decision was the greatest economic benefit would come from Heathrow.
However, Surrey still awaits a decision on where the the expansion will be. The final decision is expected from government by Christmas.
Come to this breakfast and hear Gatwick’s response to the recommendation.
The cost of this networking breakfast is £10, paid on the day.
