Kemble Airfield Granted Lawful Development Cert.
Cotswold District Council has approved an application for a Lawful Development Certificate from the operators of Kemble airfield.
The application required Kemble Airfield Estates to demonstrate, on the balance of probability, that the airfield has been used for a continuous period of at least ten years for general flying activities.
The Council had previously maintained that the principal established planning use of the airfield was for storage, repair and maintenance of aircraft, and that flying activities should only be ancillary and incidental to those operations
However, the Planning (Regulatory) Committee today agreed that the evidence recently submitted by the airfield operators proved that existing operations at the site fall within the historic established use of the airfield.
After the meeting Portfolio holder for Development Services Cllr John Birch said: "After careful consideration of all the evidence, Members decided to grant the airfield operators a Lawful Development Certificate.
"This establishes that the primary use of the airfield is for general flying purposes and that no enforcement action could consequently be taken against such activities.
"The Council is very pleased that this matter has now been resolved to the satisfaction of both parties."
