SAY NO WAY TO THIS APA (AIRSTRIP PLANNING APPLICATION)

We did it!

On Thursday 13th October, Dover District Council delivered their decision regarding the proposed airfield in Little Mongeham, refusing planning consent.

This was the result Chocks Go Away campaigned so tirelessly for.

 

The event was attended in large numbers by members and supporters from all affected parishes and addressed by representatives speaking on behalf of the applicants and Chocks Go Away teams.

The importance of this result cannot be overstated as there was so much at stake for our homes, communities, environment, wildlife and tranquility.

Of course this campaign could not have succeeded without the incredible donations, help and support of so many people from across our parishes - thank you!

It must be noted that the applicants may decide to appeal the decision. If they do we need to be ready to ensure that they do not succeed so please, bookmark this page, visit our website and keep in touch. We will update you as soon as we know more.

Thank you,

The Chocks Go Away Committee.

Yesterday the consultancy appointed by DDC Environmental Health to assess the noise implications of the proposed airfield published their report which concluded that the proposals are likely to result in a loss of amenity for local residents and result in adverse effects on health and quality of life. They further concluded that there would also be an impact on the noted tranquillity of the area (something which planning policy requires DDC to ensure is preserved and enhanced).

This is a very major setback for the applicant!
