Idle curiosity but why are there these two Restricted areas along the River Severn.
The old Magnox nuclear power stations at Berkeley and Oldbury have long been shut down and decommissioned, and fuel rods etc removed.
IIRC the restrictions at similar decommissioned power stations at Bradwell Bay and Trawsfynydd were removed some time ago , so why is there R154 and R155 ?

‘Scuse my naivety but there’s a grass strip inside R154. How does that work? AIP advises restricted apart from helicopters landing at Oldbury with site owners permission. Just trying to learn by experience as well as reading skyway code/air law etc.

It’s not the only strip inside a restricted area. Brimpton also springs to mind which has local rules for raring and departing.

Consultation ended 30th September 2021, so hopefully some progress report is due soon.

I asked that very question on this forum on 16 August. The wheels clearly grind very slowly indeed! See viewtopic.php?p=1865241#p1865241
