Hangar Homes submits plans for Solent Airport
Hangar Homes developer Peter Day has confirmed that a full planning application to build ‘live-work’ housing units on Solent Airport has been submitted.
“After three years and a huge investment in time and money, I am pleased to announce the very first full planning application in the UK for hangar homes on Lee-on-Solent Airfield,” said Peter.
“Because the airfield is zoned for employment use, the planning application is for five ‘live/work’ units aimed at aviation-based businesses, whose owners wish to live above their business and their plane.
“However, whatever happens at Lee-on-Solent will determine whether hangar homes are adopted at other GA airfields in the UK. Therefore, even if you are not interested in a ‘live/work’ hangar home on Lee-on-Solent Airfield, please support the planning application with Gosport Borough Council.”
“If planning permission is granted, Hangar Homes Ltd will be based in one of the units, and will also be a show-home for prospective buyers of hangar homes elsewhere in the UK and Europe.
“These hangar homes will hopefully breath new life into GA airfields and GA generally in the UK, as they have done in the USA for over 60 years, and are now doing so in mainland Europe.”
