MPs hosted a meeting in Parliament this week with the chairman of Gatwick to discuss noise at the airport.
Horsham MP Jeremy Quin was joined by MPs from across Sussex as they met with Gatwick chairman Sir Roy McNulty and the new Independent Commission on Arrivals.
The meeting, also attended by Nus Ghani, MP for Wealden, and Tom Tugendhat, MP for Tonbridge, Edenbridge and Malling, followed a previous meeting held by Mr Quin at Warnham Village Hall on Friday (November 27) where the commission was quizzed by more than 150 people about noise disturbance caused by arrivals and departures.
The commission has been set up by Gatwick Airport to look into the issue of noise created by arrivals at the airport. A report is expected in January.
Mr Quin said he spoke to Mr McNulty and raised residents concerns.
He said: “The Independent Commission on Arrivals will I believe produce a solid report. The proof of Gatwick’s sincerity will come in its implementation.
“Gatwick has now also committed to tackle in the coming year the issue of Departures - a project that cannot come too soon.”
