Government responds to Brownfield petition

The Government has responded to the aviation backed petition calling for the planning legislation to recognise airfields as valuable assets helping to maintain a network for aviation activity and protecting them from uncontrolled development as brownfield sites. The petition was signed by over 17,000 people.
The response clarifies the view that only developed areas of an airfield, such as the footprint of a building, can be treated as brownfield for development and that other areas, such as green space between and around runways, does not automatically become brownfield and so lose planning protection.
The response is a good outcome for aviation. The full response can be read here
