To kick off our site move with some good news is also a good plan and its great to hear that the plans to turn the Control Tower at the former RAF Greenham Common are progressing well.
Greenham Parish Council successfully bid for the property earlier this year with plans to preserve the building and turn it into a visitors centre.
Planning applications are now under way for it to receive listed status and be converted into the visitors centre. The planning application and plans can be viewed here.
RAF Greenham Common became infamous when in the 1980’s the US placed nuclear capable ground launched cruise missiles (GLCM) at the base prompted protests that lasted for decades. It holds a special place in Cold War memories in Britain.
