An urgent call for jobs investment in response to COVID-19
A joint report by PCS, Green House and Green New Deal UK on the urgent need for jobs investment in the Gatwick diamond in response to COVID-19.
For Gatwick airport and the surrounding area, a large proportion of the employment opportunities are either at the airport or in a sector associated with the airport. The advent of the Covid-19 pandemic during 2020 brought an almost complete cessation of flying, with a slow regrowth that is likely to take years to return to previous levels. As a result, contemplation of a different future for workers across the ‘Gatwick Diamond’ region around the airport has become an urgent task.
