MP Caroline Ansell says it is so important for Eastbourne to endorse Gatwick Airport’s development plans for a regular second runway.

Caroline says the move would deliver employment opportunities and careers now and in the future, energise the town’s visitor economy and support existing businesses and attract new businesses to our area. 

“Out town’s visitor economy will rise or fall based on our transport links and Gatwick is a major economic driver for us. This proposal will add the £1.5 billion to the regional economy and create an additional 18,400 new jobs,“ said Caroline.   

“This is something I have raised in Parliament and with Gatwick on a recent visit.”
