New threat to Wold GC's Pocklington airfield

Barely a year ago East Riding Council of Yorkshire Council rejected a planning application to build a housing estate just beyond the threshold of runway 18 of Wolds GC’s airfield at Pocklington. The same application has now been resubmitted (as application 17/01421/STOUT). If this application is approved it will almost certainly bring to an end national competitions like the annual two-seater competition at Pocklington. It might even lead to the closure and loss of the airfield, after 50 years of development to national importance in gliding. It is the East Riding’s only gliding site.

If you don’t think this is a good idea and you want to see gliders continuing to fly in East Yorkshire please make your objections to this planning application (you will need to register) at

or you can write to the case officer, Mrs Susan Hunt at  East Riding Of Yorkshire Council, County Hall, Cross Street Beverley, East Riding of Yorkshire HU17 9B, quoting the application reference.
