Southend Airport are Changing Flight Paths Over the Peninsula 

They are putting in place a beacon system to be able to guide aircraft into land without the use of their existing radar ( vectoring) system. Initially it will be used as a back up safety feature as not all aircraft using the airport are equipped with the technology.

The becon route will guide aircraft in over Hoo and between Cliffe and Cliffe Woods.

The traffic we are seeing today is about 50% of the total allowable flights so it is possible that we will see an increase in existing traffic with appropriately 10% of that traffic using the new beacon route.

The allowable height for aircraft flying over the peninsula is not changing.

The consultation for the Parish Council closes 19th September.. if you want to express your views please respond ASAP via clerk@highhalstow.org.uk September 2017

Medway’s Nightingales Get Reprieve From Housing Planning Application

The RSPB and Kent Wildlife Trust welcome the withdrawal today of the planning application to build 5,000 houses at Lodge Hill, Medway (Kent).

Lodge Hill is nationally protected as a Site of Special Scientific Interest for the rare and declining nightingale, holding up to 85 singing males. The site is also important for a wide range of other declining wildlife and habitats, including bats, rare grassland flowers and ancient woodland.

The development would have destroyed most of the nightingales’ habitat, and would have set a terrible precedent for protected sites everywhere.

Over 12,000 people objected to the planning application when it was approved by Medway Council in 2014, promoting the government to ‘call in’ the decision; it was due to have gone to Public Inquiry in March 2018

However, the site remains earmarked for development by Medway Council in their draft Local Plan, released earlier this year. Over 12,000 people also responded to that proposal, pointing out how this was at total odds with national planning guidance, and asking the Council to remove Lodge Hill from their final plan due in 2018.

Nic Scothern, the Regional Director for RSPB South East, said “The withdrawal of the planning application is great news, and an important step towards securing a brighter future for Lodge Hill. Our thanks to the government’s agencies who made this decision.

“However, we cannot assume that Lodge Hill is now secure, so we call on those involved to now be creative and find solutions for the site that bring real benefit to the local community while protecting its very special wildlife.”

John Bennett, Chief Executive of Kent Wildlife Trust, said “After a huge amount of work over many years to protect Lodge Hill, alongside RSPB and other conservation partners, we welcome the common sense shown by the withdrawal of this damaging development application. We look forward, optimistically, to a positive future for the area and its wildlife, which is important for Kent and the country as a whole.” September 2017

Heron Awards 2017

Every day sees an act of kindness, generosity, sacrifice and courage in our small community. From the friend who visits sick neighbours to the single parent struggling to raise children alone. From the sick child who always has a smile to those who work sacrificially to ensure our community is a wonderful place to live. The High Halstow Relief in Need Charity is once again sponsoring the Heron Awards. It has been 10 years since we last ran our community award schemes there are lots of good people out there who deserve to be recognised and thanked for the difference they make to us all of us. So often we don’t realise what a person makes till they are no longer here and then it dawns on us what we have lost. Let’s try our best to change that and say thank you while they are still here. Maybe what they do will inspire others to do the same. There will be a special award night on June 28th so book the date now and join with us as we celebrate the efforts of our friends and neighbours.High Halstow Times March 2017 … Please click here to read more and nominate March 2017
