Nus Ghani, Member of Parliament for Wealden, will be hosting a community drop-in meeting in Crowborough with members of the independent review of air traffic at and around Gatwick Airport.
Ms Ghani recently met with Mr Bo Redeborn, who is leading the review, and Mr Graham Lake, Technical Adviser, to discuss the terms of the review and the concerns of Ms Ghani’s constituents with respect to noise and disruption from aircraft.
Mr Redeborn and Mr Lake have agreed to join her at All Saints Church in Crowborough, between 5 and 6pm on Friday 23rd October, where constituents who would like to submit evidence to the review are able to meet with them and discuss their concerns.
Ms Ghani has previously welcomed Gatwick Airport’s decision to commission the review, saying last month that she was “pleased that it has acknowledged the strength of feeling of many of my constituents” and that she hoped “to be closely involved” in it.
She added to those remarks today, saying:
I was delighted, when I met with Bo and Graham, by their desire to engage, their independence from Gatwick Airport, and their determination to reach a mutually beneficial solution. Their expertise is well known, but it is pleasing that that expertise is being accompanied by a strong willingness to listen to Wealden’s residents.
Mr Redeborn said:
We are currently in the vital listening phase of our review and have yet to say no to anyone who wants to talk to us. I hope that many people will be able to join us in Crowborough to have their say, because understanding their perspective is an important part of the review process.
