Planning Inspector dismisses appeals by Stone Hill Park against decisions to reject change of use at Manston Airport.

The four buildings will therefore remain as 'aviation use only'.

New aviation investor lines up for Compulsory Purchase Order on Manston Airport

We are extremely pleased to announce, as reported by Paul Francis in this week's Thanet Extra/Kent Online, that the new potential investor discussed recently has now made their intentions known in public. As detailed in the report, we have continued to pursue potential investors for the airport whilst retaining their commercial confidentiality, as part of our campaign goal to return Manston as an airport and to attract inward investment to our area. It was clear from our initial meeting that options being considered could suit our valuable local asset and our area as a whole, whilst demonstrating a genuine and passionate desire to bring Manston back into operation.

Once again, this further interest plainly shows there is a will and requirement in the market to retain Manston for full aviation use. This company’s statement of intent to base a dozen aircraft at Manston gives a clear indication that they believe there are benefits from utilising the site as an airport over alternatives already available.

We look forward to further positive news in the near future and all our fellow airport campaigners welcoming this latest demonstration of the clearly held industry belief in the viability of Manston Airport.

'History of Manston Airfield' sites now available

http://www.supportmanstonairport.org/history-manston-airfield-sites-now-available/

For more details on the history of Manston, there is now a new website, Facebook page and Twitter account.

They bring together various sources of information connected to events, squadrons, aircraft and personnel that have been involved with Manston over its history. However, due to the vast amount of history, the information will be building up over time.

The Facebook page shows the majority of "On this day" posts, whereas on the website there are a number of longer posts on specific topics, as well as background information, again currently being expanded.

All sites and pages connected to "History of Manston Airfield" are non-political and also intended to support the existing heritage at Manston as well as books, artwork and organisations with links to it.

Upcoming Planning Committee Meeting and Likely Exclusions

There has been a lot of recent commentary regarding item 7 listed in TDC’s Planning Committee meeting on Wednesday 14th December 2016 entitled ‘Change of Use Appeals - Manston Airport’ which is marked as restricted and is likely to exclude the public and press next week.

Many people have jumped to the conclusion, without any evidence, that this might be a negative turn of events regarding planning for Manston Airport...
