A partnership designed to protect a First World War aerodrome will allow it to be restored after a century.

Stow Maries aerodrome is unique, as it is the only aerodrome left complete from the end of the First World War.

The Listed Building Heritage Partnership Agreement is between the Trustees of the aerodrome, Maldon District Council and English Heritage.

Chairman of the Stow Maries Great War Aerodrome Trust, Jeremy Lucas said: “Once the agreement finalises, it will extend effectively, for up to ten years, any planning applications which are approved in the normal way.

“We will not keep having to go back to Maldon District Council and English Heritage to renew a planning application which for one reason or another, financial or time wise, we have not been able to do.

“It should give us flexibility, it’s very, very positive.

“We hope it will all be approved in a month or two and will allow the continuation of the restoration of Stow Maries.”
