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.
