In an incredulous decision, Hambleton District Council has served an enforcement notice on Yorkshire Air Ambulance (YAA) to move off Bagby Airfield due to noise issues – hands up those who genuinely think MD Explorers are noisy…Â YAA has also been served with a notice to dismantle its flight crew room, toilet and shower block.
A spokesman for Hambleton District Council, which issued the enforcement notice, said they were “working closely” with YAA to find an alternative satellite base.Â Apart from the area served from their main base at Leeds-Bradford Airport, Bagby had been specifically chosen to cover the rest of their patch.
Martin Scott, who owns the grass airstrip, has been served with an unprecedented 14 enforcement notices, including stopping the use of part of the runway and ceasing helicopter training and taxi services.
A spokesman for the YAA reportedly said the charity was considering its position – it has until 20th December to launch an appeal against the enforcement notice.
