UK – Central Helicopters to build new off-airfield base 22 Oct, 12, Source: Central Helicopters

Central Helicopters, a leading UK-based provider of helicopter services for business purposes, aerial photography, weddings and other occasions, have received planning permission to relocate to new premises.

Central Helicopters has been based at Tollerton Airfield – also known as Nottingham City Airport – for the past five years, but now they have been granted permission to construct a new base at Broughton Lodge Farm in Fosse Way, Upper Broughton. Whilst Central Helicopters and Nottingham City Airport have enjoyed a mutually-beneficial working relationship over the years, the company felt that they needed a permanent base as opposed to further leasing.

While Central Helicopters had previously applied for planning permission in Broughton, there was some resistance from the planning committee due to the impact the aircraft may have on people’s enjoyment of the area. However, after further investigation, their concerns were appeased, which leaves Central helicopters free to begin building on the site, which is due to commence in spring 2013.

“While we have established a strong relationship with Tollerton Airfield over the past five years, we want to create a permanent base for the future, and our new site has fantastic potential,” a spokesperson for Central Helicopters said. “The heliport and offices we plan to build are being designed to ensure maximum storage for all of our helicopters and a bigger work space for our team. We want to thank Nottingham City Airport for providing such a fantastic space for so long, and we look forward to creating a brand new home for Central Helicopters!”
