MVDC position re Gatwick Airport Draft Masterplan (note updated 24th December) 

Below is a statement outlining MVDC’s response to Gatwick Airport Limited’s draft Master Plan consultation 2018. MVDC’s formal response to the consultation in full can be found by visiting

Response to Draft Gatwick Airport Master Plan 2018 Consultation

Mole Valley District Council’s response to Gatwick Airport Limited (GAL)’s consultation
Councillor Charles Yarwood, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Strategy and Assets, said: “Having comprehensively reviewed the draft Master Plan, Mole Valley District Council (MVDC) has now submitted a formal response to Gatwick Airport Limited’s consultation that addresses the three outlined growth scenarios.

“MVDC is supportive of any potential growth within Gatwick’s existing boundaries as a one runway and two terminal international airport. The Master Plan outlines economic benefits to the wider area that outweigh the relatively modest environmental impacts. It strikes an acceptable balance between the airport’s ambition to grow and the need to respect the living conditions of communities that surround the airport.

“The outline proposal to bring the emergency runway into use for departing flights, alongside the existing runway, raises significant concerns. An absence of evidence relating to the impact on noise, air quality and surface such a scheme could bring leaves MVDC unable to reach a definitive and informed position without these essential details being clarified further. MVDC opposes proposals to continue to safeguard land for a new fully operational runway, which would have a significant impact on the environment and quality of life for residents in Mole Valley.”

After considering direct feedback from Fetcham residents and traders and noting the Comments posted (by the 6th Sept) on MVDC's website, the FRA has submitted a Letter of Representation  for consideration by the Planning Dept. Case Officer and Members of the Development Control Committee.
We had been advised that due to a backlog of applications requiring consideration by the Development Control Committee (DCC) and the Planning Department's Case Officers workload, this application was expected to be considerd by the DCC on the 7th December. The Application WAS NOT included in the AGENDA for the December or the subsequent meeting on the 9th January 2019.
We are now advised that due to the threshold number having changed from 10 to 9 of proposed units requiring affordable units be provided by the developer, additional viability reports and proposals are to be submitted by the developer. It is now hoped that these can be submitted and taken into account for a Case Officer's reccomendation to be made this month for consideration at the next DCC meeting on the the February (6th)
