What ever is going to happen to our green and pleasant land?

Gatwick Airport want to swallow up every piece of greenery to lay concrete and build a second runway with a third large terminal, and now Reigate and Banstead Borough Council want to turn 173 acres of fields near Horley in to a business park. BAA originally called Gatwick their airport in the country. Gatwick Airport, Gatwick Diamond and other local business leaders will not be happy until they have crucified every tree and blades of grass for miles around just for their financial profit.
