I thought they were supposed to be impartial!

I was going to reply with this, but I can't be bothered to register on the site:There is no chance you'll have "planes landing 100ft over your house, every half hour, seven days a week ,10 months of the year" - just go and look at movement logs for larger grass airfields than this planned strip. More likely there will be very little activity most of the week and a few more flights on weekends with nice weather. If it's too windy, wet or the clouds are too low it will be dead. And if you're really expecting aircraft to be 100ft over your house then you must live incredibly close to the ends of the proposed strip, and I see no dwellings on Google Maps/Earth in such locations, so this is mere exaggeration on your part.
Also look up the 28-day rule - a strip can be established here and used for 28-days every year with no planning permission whatsoever. http://www.permitteddevelopment.org/The ... opment.php At least with a strip with planning permission then the local authority can establish limititations on it's usage.
If someone else (@PeteSpencer?) wants to cut and paste or edit and paste, then feel free.
Even if elected local councillors don't like the idea, they should be guided by their officers in accordance with planning policy and if they don't, it can end up costing local authorities a great deal of money at appeal or judicial review.
