The end game is more than likely to want to build houses on it, and we lose a fantastic resource.
"Proving" that the airfield is unviable financially is one part of the process.
That part isn't irrelevant at all.
Of course the end game is houses and of course they want to work towards apparent non-viability, that much is obvious. SDC are pushing back by (a) not granting planning, (b) making them offer leases to most of the existing aviation tenants, and (c) not letting them demolish buildings that would only be of use to an aviation tenant. The only of of these that requires a quid pro quo is (b), and the quid pro quo is that they stop the CPO process for now.
