Back to News

Leading commercial property developer, Stoford and Strategic land promoter Gladman, have unveiled plans for the evolution of Wellesbourne Mountford Airfield.

Working in partnership, Stoford and Gladman are developing proposals which will ensure the long-term future of the airfield through the delivery of a new runway and enhanced aviation facilities, alongside a new high-quality employment park that will generate significant job opportunities.

The plans will see the airfield revitalised with a new runway, new hangars, aircraft parking and maintenance facilities, along with a new control tower, a check-in area, waiting lounge and café. The proposals also include new flexible industrial floorspace to meet a variety of smaller needs.

The significant investment into the airfield will attract new business, training and recreational fliers to the site, appealing to a future new commercial operator.  

The airfield enhancements would be funded via the redevelopment of the underused part of the existing site into a new, high-quality employment park of approximately 210,000 sq. m of industrial and logistics space.  The developers have now launched a public consultation, including exhibition events at Wellesbourne Methodist Church, Bridge Street, Wellesbourne (CV35 9LR), on Wednesday 6th September 5.30pm-7.30pm and Thursday 7th September 2.30pm-7.30pm.

People can also learn more and provide feedback via a dedicated consultation website www.wellesbourneairfieldconsultation.co.uk - the website will be live from Wednesday 6th September. 

Chris Still, Senior Planning & Development Director at Gladman, comments: “We’re delighted to be unveiling our plans for the airfield site and look forward to engaging with stakeholders and the local community as we progress with the proposals.  

“Our proposals will ensure the airfield can be substantially improved and thrive long into the future.”

Stoford Director, Andy Hartwright, said: “There is a clear opportunity for the site to become a strategic employment hub in the district that supports the council’s economic growth and diversification strategy. Stratford-on-Avon and the wider South Warwickshire region has a thriving economy which attracts regional, national and international companies, and the site is strategically located to take advantage of the region’s well-developed infrastructure and proximity to the motorway network.”  

Any questions about the proposals or the public consultation can be put to the community affairs team via 08000 356 480 or info@wellesbourneairfieldconsultation.co.uk
