Sorry Guys, 'Aviva said No', not enough votes. 4,000,000 votes cast nationwide. Tough competition they said.

Thankyou for Voting.

Just a note on Prescott - I believe he is on record for the following gaff -
'The Green Belt is a Labour Achievement and we intend to build on it'.

Rang up for an instructing job there in late 90s and spoke to some rude, foreign sounding [email protected]
Rudest man I've spoke to in GA.

If he still runs it , I have little sympathy

As far as I know, the site is still empty. The owners of the land do not have planning permission to build on it yet although I understand that some of the old hangars have been pulled down.

Maripose have 3 proposals for development, with one of them retaining a runway my moving it slightly north of its current position.

One of the issues for Maripose is that the official green belt border lies on the runway so building north of it is harder for them..

That's all I know

Thanks. I bet the T2 has gone - to be fair it was in a poor state.

Affirm. Last time I passed over, there was just the hint of an outline left of it. Runway and taxiway looked like they're still being mown, though.

I see Panshangar needs support again..

Make your voice heard and keep up the pressure before 8th March!
Sue Hart

4 MAR 2018 — We need you to show your support once again, there is an ongoing planning hearing regarding Panshanger, we have until the 8th of March to gather support for our plan.

You can make your voice heard by going to the council's website through clicking on the link... and support the application for a community aerodrome:

Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council Offices - Online Planning Register

(If you can email a screenshot of your submission to [email protected]. If you have already registered on the council website, just log in with those details, if not please register to make your comment count.)

There has been a lot happening recently concerning our beloved local airfield. There has been another Planning Inspector hearing on the local plan put forward by the council, and our group Panshanger Community Airfield made an outline planning application setting out formally our plan to reopen the airfield.
We will not accept Panshanger being anything other than a bright light for the future of the community.

Now the people of Welwyn Hatfield and the wider aviation community, need to let the council planners know that we are very excited about the prospect of reinstating such an iconic piece of Welwyn Garden City’s cultural heritage, and look forward to making it a truly wonderful place that they will be proud to have in their borough, a source of joy, adventure, fun, education, inspiration to young and old!

The Draft Local Plan promised ‘the opportunity for a realigned grass runway’ and that ‘development should be configured to allow for the opportunity’ so we need to hold them to their word.
Please act now so your voice is heard before 8th March 2018.

Just looking at the Project Phoenix website, does anyone know the latest with the planning application? I can't find any recent news. Thanks.

Found on another forum

Two new planning applications for airfields have been submitted to Welwyn & Hatfield Borough Council to replace Panshanger, one between Welwyn Garden City and Hatfield, the other at Hatfield on the old aerodrome site.
