Redhill Aerodrome: appeal upheld!

I was very pleased to learn that this afternoon the appeal against a High Court ruling permitting a hard runway has been upheld. The judgement confirms that a development of this kind is not permissible within the Government’s guidelines to protect the greenbelt, and is hopefully the end of a long-running battle that has blighted the lives of local residents who would have been affected. This result is a further endorsement of Tandridge District Council and Reigate & Banstead Borough Council’s judgement, that this was the wrong development in the wrong place at the wrong time. I would again like to pay tribute to the persistent hard work of Keep Redhill Aerodrome Green (KRAG), Nutfield Parish Council, and the local residents who campaigned so strongly against this development.
