Common Land Deregistration Decision


Blackbushe Airport are elated to receive the decision of the Planning Inspectorate with respect to Application COM/3206697, an application to deregister the active aerodrome from Yateley Common.

The decision in favour of Blackbushe Airport brings an end to five decades of uncertainty regarding the its future. The airport is in desperate need of substantial investment, and this outcome paves the way for an exciting Aviation development.

The application and inquiry process took two and a half years, and a great deal of hard work from many supporters, users, and former employees of the airport. We thank all of them for their outstanding contributions.

The current owners, who bought the airport in 2015, have a vision of Blackbushe as a General Aviation centre of excellence, supporting a wide range of activities. The full vision for the future is available at

We will now focus our attention to the rationalisation of the airport layout and the design. This will include plans for hangarage and other facilities the airport needs. We hope to be able to share more of these details with the Aviation Community in the coming months.
