Stow Maries former WW1 airfield planning application

Postby andygolfer » Thu Dec 08, 2016 7:42 pm

the trustees and operators of the only remaining WW1 airfield in the UK at Stow Maries, Essex ( http://www.stowmaries.org.uk/ ) have submitted a planning application to Maldon District Council for increased movements over the present unworkable limit of 12 aircraft per day.
They are asking anybody who has an interest in their project or the airfield aviation / shows to write to the council in support of their submission

here is a link to the council page for the planning application: http://publicaccess.maldon.gov.uk/onlin ... VI0KKGSM00

they suggest wording along the lines of what a unique asset Stow Maries Great War Aerodrome is, how the small air displays and visiting aircraft have really added atmosphere and brought the place alive as a true "living museum"and how the limited number of extra movements requested would be unlikely to impact adversely on the local environment etc. You would need to register and obtain a login.

This would be much appreciated by the trustees and could help them to have the application granted and thereby keep the aerodrome active as the truly unique and wonderful place that they have created

here are my photos of some of this year's events:

FRANCIS: Now, this is the palace in Caesar's Square. Our commando unit will approach from Fish Street, under cover of night, and make our way to the northwestern main drain. If questioned, we are sewage workers on our way to a conference. Reg, our glorious leader and founder of the P.F.J., will be coordinating consultant at the drain head, though he himself will not be taking part in any terrorist action, as he has a bad back.
BRIAN: Aren't you going to come with us? REG: Solidarity, brother. BRIAN: Oh, yes. Solidarity, Reg.
FRANCIS: Once in the sewer, timing will be of the essence. There is a Roman feast later in the evening, so we must move fast, and don't wear your best sandals. Turning left here, we enter the Caesar-Augustus memorial sewer and from there, proceed directly to the hypocaust.
