Old Sarum airfield to close by end of October

Airfield owners Old Sarum Airfield Ltd, says Spire FM, 'have been at the centre of a long running and unsuccessful planning row which ended recently with plans for 462 homes around the site being flatly refused'.

Old Sarum airfield has been in continuous use for flying operations for more than 100 years, since the Royal Flying Corps started using it in 1917.

It was RAF Old Sarum during WWII and turned into a general aviation airfield in 1982.

Old Sarum is the home of the Boscombe Down Aviation Collection museum.

Paul price I take it the owners of Spire FM must have a vested interest in the proposed development ??

Ron Parker Unbelievable! Have people been following a parallel story on Wellesbourne airfield?

Nigel Bailey So what is actually happening? Are Aircraft owners still being asked to remove their aircraft from the site or was it all Spire Radio broadcasting fake news?

Robert Hill If true, it’s another devastating loss to GA. A really great airfield that should be saved for the national infrastructure

Ed Green A re-run of Panshanger. Shut 3 years back after planning permission refused. In another 2 years the owners will re-submit claiming no aviation activity so if the council wants some income (rates) they will probably agree to x number of houses.

John coker So greedy developers win out again over jobs, common sense and a valuable and historical amenity.

Doug Flory Not really a full story here. Headline differs completely from the full story with no actual link between what Old Sarum and Spire FM are saying. Not the sort of reporting I would expect from Archant!

Phil Gilpin Surely, sending out such communication must just about break every rule - and law - in the book?! I would well imagine 102MHz isn't very popular among you chaps.
