London councilors back Gatwick Airport expansion plans

The results of a poll published by market research firm YouGov has shown that 63% of London councilors support the expansion of London Gatwick Airport compared with 44% that are in favor of Heathrow.

YouGov used a total sample size of 203 respondents for the results, ensuring that the figures were weighted and representative of all London councilors by political party, council control, region and gender. The survey was carried out online from July 29 to August 9, 2016, with half of the respondents claiming that the certainty of delivering an airport expansion project was more important since the Brexit vote.

Stewart Wingate, London Gatwick CEO, said, “London has united behind the expansion of Gatwick as the only scheme that gives us guaranteed growth while limiting the impact on the environment.

“Crucially Gatwick expansion is the only plan that can actually be delivered and, unlike Heathrow, it does not need £5bn (US$6.5bn) of taxpayer funding. This money could otherwise be put toward vital infrastructure projects such as Crossrail 2, Thames river crossings, and new homes.”
