Gatwick published the detailed summary as a response to Independent Arrivals Review which was embarked in January.
Gatwick take on all the suggestions of the review and has set an action plan.
Among the major recommendations, they asked to position an Independent Noise management board which will be conducted by author of the Arrivals Review, Bo Redborn.
Bo Redeborn said: “I was very delighted with the feedback of all those who are concerned to the Arrivals Review and I am now pleased that Gatwick has pronounced that they accept all of the given recommendations”.
“There is undoubtedly a good deal of work to be done to bring this about and I am very pleased to have been proposed to be Chairman of the Independent Noise Management Board.
“In that role, one of the first things I would be doing is to monitor how Gatwick, and the other stakeholders who contributed to this review, implement the recommendations that have now been accepted.”
Tom Tugendhat MBE MP, Member of Parliament for Tonbridge, Edenbridge and Malling all have welcomed the decision of Gatwick airport and accepted the recommendations of Independent Arrivals review.
It is a clear path towards implementation of the review, which proposed a number of measures to lighten the intensity of aircraft noise in West Kent.
Tom reviewed after the Gatwick response “I am happy that Gatwick has listened to the community’s point of view on the Airports Arrivals Review and has granted each of the recommendations”.
“When executed, these will overturn the changes of 2013 which have brutally damaged the lives and livelihoods of many ones in Tonbridge, Edenbridge and surrounding rural communites.
“Of particular importance is broadening of the flightpath, and I am pleased that Gatwick agreed to accept this proposal provided that National Air Traffic Service (NATS) can implement it.
“I will again write to NATS to explain the significance of this, and how they must do all they can to make this change.
“There will be an additional consultation and I would suggest all residents concerned to make their views heard to ArrivalsReview@gatwickairport.com in the upcomming six weeks.”
Gatwick bosses have taken the right decision towards the implementation of recommendations. It will bring improvements in the environmental issues of West Kent residents and save the trades of Tonbridge, Edenbridge and nearby villages.
