Decision details

Gatwick Airport Development Consent Order

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: No




To delegate authority to the Director of Place, in consultation with the Cabinet Member for Planning and Development and the Cabinet Member for the Local Economy, to respond to procedural consultations and engagement as part of the Development Consent Order application process.




Without delegated authority, it is unlikely that the Council will be able to effectively engage with the DCO process.  If responses are not submitted in accordance with the statutory timescales they cannot be taken into account.  Without the requested delegation in place, this could result in a recommendation made to the Secretary of State regarding the future of Gatwick Airport, which does not fully take account of impacts upon Horsham District.
