In Say no to Mongeham airfield!
You’ve heard of the Tooth Fairies, but have you ever heard of the Sign Sprites? Neither had we, but it seems they really do exist and enjoy nothing more than uprooting and making off with our Chocks Go Away signs. Bless them. Fortunately, there were a handful of signs that were covered by CCTV, and we look forward to reviewing the footage and discovering who the little rascals are. We'll let you know...

In Say no to Mongeham airfield!
Chocks Go Away have received even more press coverage over the last couple of weeks. If you haven’t already read the articles, please click on the following links. BBC Radio Kent also invited us to take part in a two-way debate with the developers last Saturday. Unfortunately, the opportunity was lost because the applicants failed to respond to the invitations that were sent to them. A huge thank you to the many hundreds of people supporting the campaign who are all helping to get the message out there.

The two images below show the application plan and the result of work undertaken on behalf of Mr. Richard Ledger on his land relating to the proposed airfield. This work was publicly described as "routine farm maintenance" by the applicant's agent in the recent public Zoom meeting. We leave it to you to arrive at your own conclusions.

Recorded this morning, right beside the proposed site of the airstrip.

A photograph (area enlarged on the right) that was taken after work on Mr. Ledger's land unexpectedly began this week. This work, to clear away rewilded land, has subsequently been halted by DDC inspectors until a proper application is submitted and approved.

According to one pilot review, PA28s flew from their old airfield. How will 7,500 movements a year sound in our field?

Watch this and then try to imagine 7,500 flights coming and going every year from an airstrip in the middle of the field.
Can you imagine it?  content media

The proposal document (attached) verges on the surreal. Who knew that light aircraft had engines that were so quiet, that having 7,500 flights coming and going from an airstrip in the middle of a field, within touching distance of homes and communities either side of it, will go totally unnoticed. Please lobby your councillors and stop this madness.
