North Weald Airfield is closed to all flying, except for emergency services.
Following last night’s announcement by the Prime Minister we have decided to close North Weald Airfield until further notice.
All flying except the key services of Essex and Herts Air-Ambulance and the National Police Air Service has been suspended in line with the announcement allowing only essential contact and travel.
Cllr Aniket Patel Cabinet Member for Commercial and Regulatory Services said:
These are unprecedented times and on the Prime Minister’s directive to
- Only go outside for food, health reasons or essential work
- Stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people
We felt we had to take this decision, along with the closure of the Saturday market, which we made last week.
