We are delighted to inform you that having reviewed all the written evidence and heard the oral evidence The Inspector has supported our community and dismissed RAV’s appeal regarding their proposal to build a hard runway.
The Inspector supported our view that the “very special circumstances” submitted by The Applicants did not outweigh the importance of preserving The Green Belt.
The Inspectors full judgement is available on
We are pleased to thank all the KRAG supporters and members of the local communities who attended the hearing in support of those giving evidence.
We also thank all those who submitted their observations to The LPA’s and The Inspector. Every piece of evidence has helped to bring about this important decision.
KRAG will remain vigilant and monitor RAV’s response.
We also intend to seek information regarding alternative plans that the aerodrome owners may be considering in relation to the site.
In the short term congratulations for a job well done by all opposing parties and THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT.
We urge those affected to lodge a formal objection to the application using the information that is provided on this site at this link
