Council supports Gatwick second runway appeal

Gatwick Airport’s campaign for a second runway received last-minute support from Southwark Council on Tuesday.

The council announced its desire to work together with the airport on the day that the Airport Commission ended its period of public consultation.

Councillor Peter John, Leader of Southwark Council, said: “I am backing Gatwick’s plans which offer a real opportunity for Southwark and south London.

“More frequent trains for London Bridge, the opportunity for local people to access thousands of new jobs and apprenticeships and opportunities for businesses to supply the new airport will all benefit local people.”
