Redhill Aerodrome Hard Runway Planning Application 2012
On Monday 30th July 2012, Redhill Aerodrome Ltd (RAL) submitted a revised planning application for a hard runway to Reigate and Banstead Borough Council and Tandridge District Council. In May of this year, RAL announced its intention to prepare a revised planning application and undertake a process of public consultation, which it undertook between 21st May and 18th June.
The decision to submit a revised planning application followed the refusal, on limited grounds, of its earlier planning application at the end of 2011. This was combined with a decision not to pursue an appeal of the decisions for refusal, on that occasion. The application submitted today, seeks to specifically address the reasons for refusal of the previous application, through a range of changes and improvements, which are summarised below:
Although noise was mentioned by the councils in relation to the Green Belt, noise was not, in itself, a reason for refusal of the last application.
In other respects, the application remains the same as that submitted in 2011.
The local planning authorities will undertake a 21 day consultation on the planning application and invite comments. The planning application will have a 16 week determination period, which means a decision is not expected before November 2012.
Details of the application including key application documents are available to view and download from the website below.
