For you inforfmation from Neil Cooper Stratford District Council.
This is just a “heads up” to advise that, in approximately 2 – 3 weeks, work is due to commence on levelling a portion of the operational area at Stratford Aerodrome between the runways and the hangars. This is an area of approximately 800 square metres at the western end.
The area will be “roped” off and will be out of action for as long as it takes for the re-grassing to take sufficiently to allow resumption of traffic. I’m sure common sense will prevail and the need to allow it time to rehabilitate will prevail and apologise for any inconvenience in having to detour slightly in taxiing between runway and hangar.
