Dunsfold Airfield has been nominated for designation as a Conservation Area. Local Planning Authorities are obliged to designate as conservation areas any parts of their own area that are of special architectural or historic interest, the character and appearance of which it is desirable to preserve or enhance. Waverley Borough Council Planning Department are considering an application for Dunsfold Aerodrome now and there is a consultation process concluding on April 28th 2017. If you want to support the designation then now is the time to make comments about what Dunsfold means to you via WBC’s simple online questionnaire here.
The original application for designation was made by Dunsfold Airfield History Society (DAHS) in parallel with Historic England‘s proposals for Listed status on upto 10 buildings and structures on the airfield. The history society has launched a new website this week: https://dunsfoldairfield.org/
