No objection to police air unit plans
North Weald Bassett Parish Council has voiced no objection to plans to enable the National Police Air Service unit to relocate from High Beach to North Weald airfield.
A planning application has been submitted for a hangar, office, store and workshop together with a 50,000-litre bunded aircraft fuel tank and a 2,000-litre LPG tank for heating the accommodation unit.
The air unit - two helicopters and a fixed wing aircraft - has to move from its current base at Lippitts Hill by the end of March.
It is one of the NPAS bases serving London and the south east of England.
