Living Near Gatwick Airport

Gatwick Airport is located in Crawley, Sussex, which is situated halfway between the capital city and the coast. The town has grown considerably since the initial design plans were laid down during the 1940s. The huge development of Crawley has been largely due to the massive expansion of Gatwick International Airport, as well as a lot of encouragement from Crawley Council.
The further development of Gatwick airport brings with it both pros and cons for all those living in the surrounding areas. The airport has brought a large amount of business and jobs to the area. However, some local resident groups believe that it has also brought with it an increase in air and noise pollution.
