Public inquiry into Gatwick North Terminal expansion?

Will we see a public inquiry held in to the proposed expansion of the North Terminal at Gatwick?

Well, it looks like the plan to expand Gatwick’s North Terminal is on ice after the Government stepped in to prevent Crawley Borough Council from granting planning permission while it decides whether or not to hold a public inquiry in to the expansion.

A decision on the application was due in early November, however, the local council brought forward the debate to last Monday and was expected to approve it.

The proposed extension of the North Terminal could see Gatwick handle 20,000 more flights than 2008 and an extra 5 million passengers – around 40 million a year.
