WHY OPPOSE THE NEW AIRFIELD?

Welcome to Herts Green Valley. We are a group of local campaigners raising awareness of the disruption and pollution that a new airfield in Panshanger will bring.

The proposal for a new airfield immediately adjacent to 600 new homes being built on the site will bring a level of disruption and pollution that many people will not be aware of.

Lead poisoning from the use of Avgas light aircraft fuel is a serious health problem. Plus noise of proposed plane, microlight and helicopter activity, is hugely disruptive to the surrounding area. Furthermore, recent events suggest the safety risks from unfortunate accidents are tangible and as such the proposal brings airplane activity far too close to residential developments, current and planned.

The alternative use of the land for more houses potentially along with developer provided social facilities assisting sport, recreation and the community is a better objective, more in keeping with the needs of our community and that’s why we are campaigning to prevent the new airfield. Over the coming weeks we’ll add more details of the campaign to this website. If you would like more information please email us at info@hertsgreenvalley.org
