Hopefully only temporary planning issues which will be resolved in due course. The airfield has been in operation since 1962 and has been a licensed airfield for much of that time. It has also enjoyed the support of the Local Authority for many years and has contributed to the local area as an amenity and gateway for tourism.
The planning issues arose partly due to complaints from a neighbour and while the majority of our neighbours support the airfield, we have to accept the fact that not everyone loves aeroplanes!

Look forward to seeing you at Kilkenny in the near future.
