IMPORTANT UPDATE !!!
The recent decision by Epping Forest
District Council's Cabinet Committee to
retain aviation a North Weald Airfield and
only permit housing and similar developments
on land adjacent to the airfield is in
danger of being overturned. A meeting of
EFDC's Overview and Scrutiny committee
scheduled for 27th August 2013 could see
demands for the decision to be overturned in
favour of developing the entire airfield for
housing and other developments, resulting in
the loss of aviation...and the airfield!
Here is a link to EFDC's original press
release relating the decision to adopt
"OPTION 3" (continued aviation combined with
development on land adjacent to the active
At the time of writing, we understand that
the Overview and Scrutiny Committee meeting
will not be held in private session (at
least not entirely) so that the public may
be permitted to observe proceedings,
although direct contributions (unless lodged
through one of the councillors in advance)
are not allowed.
We would urge supporters of North Weald
Airfield to turn up at EFDC's Council
Offices in Epping on the date of the meeting
to make their presence felt. NWAUG will
co-ordinate this show of the strength of
opinion to retain the airfield with other
local groups including the North Weald
Residents Association. We will post timings
and any further relevant information as soon
as we have it.
Thanks for your support.
