removing 13 hangar homes homes from the original application, which were neither here or there anyway
On the contrary, "Service-leases" would generate an income-stream , set a precedent for Airparks with residential hangarage and maybe offer a lifeline to struggling airfields by so-doing.
Long-term security of airfields is a 2-way street. The mere thought of housing without the noise of aircraft is enough to send property-values skyward.-The Government needs, therefore, to consider putting a "blight" on Airfields, such that , like Agricultural-land and listed- buildings, the deterrence- value to profiteering sees -off developers, who's main objective is to cram as many small, shoddy breeding-boxes on a site as is possible, take the maximum profit and then leg it to the next bit of exploitation. Perhaps mandatory occupation of one of the properties on the site would focus some minds?
The key to land-values is residential-planning possibility. A compromise ,in the case of airparks, could possibly be to designate the hangarage as "Aircraft storage or business-use only " thus deterring the opportunist who buys with the thought of turning the whole unit into a bigger home.
It is a thorny problem which is not helped by the problem of too many people in certain areas of the country.
