Gatwick Northern Runway Proposal
The Northern Runway Project involves bringing the existing northern runway into routine use alongside continued use of the main runway. It is currently restricted for use as a standby or emergency runway when the main runway can’t be used.
The Northern Runway Project proposals are a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project. The airport must apply to the:
- Planning Inspectorate for a development consent order (DCO) to build and operate the scheme
The proposals are at the pre-application stage of the DCO process. Gatwick Airport Limited have indicated that they are unlikely to submit their application until the end of 2022 or early in 2023
After the application for a DCO has been submitted there will be further rounds of public consultation.
