The site is currently a grassed area that is being used for aircraft parking.

Enstone Airfield is a small airfield that is currently used for light aircraft and motor gliders.

It was built during WW2 but is now used for general aviation.

The application was submitted by Enstone Airlines and it was received by West Oxfordshire District Council yesterday (July 3).

It is currently under consideration and no decision date has yet been confirmed.
