Gatwick Airport has closed its public consultation which was seeking public input on proposals to bring its existing north runway into service alongside its main runway by summer 2029. The consultation lasted 12 weeks, from September 9, 2021 to December 1, 2021.

The proposed plan would require the centerline of the runway to be repositioned 12m further north, allowing dual-runway operations with the main airport runway. These plans are expected to generate around 18,400 additional jobs by 2038, as well as an expected gross value added (GVA) of £1.5 billion ($1.99 billion) for the region.
