Development of Wellesbourne Airfield meets with massive thumbs-down from local residents
THE latest proposals for the development of Wellesbourne Airfield have met with a massive thumbs-down from local residents following a public consultation exercise.
Plans unveiled by strategic land promoter Gladman and commercial property developer Stoford are facing cynicism, and even suspicion, from campaigners who’re determined the airfield should survive as a significant aviation centre.
The response, in a nutshell, is that the proposals don’t make sense, either economically or from a planning perspective. This has led to fears that the airfield’s aviation activities could be curtailed by stealth, making the venue inoperative as an airfield in the longer term.
