Popham Airfield needs your help!
POPHAM AIRFIELD: Please help!
Basingstoke and Deane Council have proposed adding Popham Airfield to their Local Plan - to turn it into a 3,500 home 'Garden Village'.
This proposal is not in line with either Government policy or their stated aim to make the UK the best place in the world for General Aviation. The Government's policy can be found in their publication 'Flightpath to the Future" and makes repeated references to the vital importance of airfields, forming a critical part of national infrastructure. https://bit.ly/3OhuKf3
You can have your say and tell Basingstoke & Deane Council that their proposal is contrary to Government policy and insist the proposal is removed from the current ‘draft’ strategic plan.
