A planning application has been submitted that would if successful permanently close the hard and grass runways that we currently use forever!!
WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT TO DEFEAT THIS APPLICATION
here is how you can help to preserve this valuable and unique facility for generations to come.
Please put the planning reference number both in the Subject line of your e-mail and in the body text of your e-mail
This is what Lomand Holdings are putting forward as support for their application
The leisure activities in the main involve recreational flying of light
aircraft and microlights, which has led to the further approval of
workshops and hangers on the north side of the airfield perimeter
and at the eastern end of the main runway within the Great Tew
Estate. Although the proposed development involves a middle
section of the main runway it should not affect the flying rights of the
Clubs that operate from within the Great Tew Estate or from the
established grass strip north of the main runway. The other
recreation activities that have been approved involve off-road motor
Having any kind of obstacle on an active runway is some what dangerous, plus the wind turbulence rotor off the buildings will effect all runways users.
By cutting the runway in half it would become unusable by aircraft, Lomand have done their home work and know well the consequences for the airfield if they are successful.
Lomand and its sister company Leven holdings own most of the main runway and the industrial site, there are at least 3 alternative locations suitable for this proposal marked as red blocks. Alternative locations 2
I believe that their aim is to make the site more desirable for development by reducing the flying. Once this is achieved they will sell the site to a developer.
