I hadn't heard about that so did some digging.
The site location plan
shows it affects the eastern end of the tarmac which is currently fenced off.
That is where EFC used to be based, before moving to the western side about 5 years ago.
That site was used for rally drive training and other motor sport, which didn't care about being under the final approach to '26 hard'.
I should imagine that the 26 holiday homes may not fit as comfortably with being under the approach.This is the link
to the planning summary.
Maybe Ian can offer some insight?
