Dunsfold Aerodrome is about to pass into the hands of a new owner.

Waverley Borough Council Leader John Ward told last night's meeting of the full council that a change of ownership was on the cards.

He added: "As the site is so significant for the local area and for the borough, the council has offered to assist in the smooth transition and has provided information to [the owner] Trinity on the importance of development at the park. We are interested in exploring with them all of the options for the future ownership of the park and how an exemplary sustainable development will be delivered on the timescales of the existing planning permission.

"This is a very significant step and an opportunity to ensure that the park achieves our high ambitions in the context of post-Covid recovery. We look forward to engaging closely with Trinity College’s transition team in the coming weeks and months.”

Waverley has granted planning permission for up to 1,800 new homes on the site. Campaign group Protect our Waverley failed to overturn that decision at a judicial review in the High Court in July 2017.
