There have been no new Planning Applications for Fylingdales since 2005 (confirmed by North Yorks Parks Planning Department – Helmsley 5 September 2008)


The Planning Departments at Harrogate (for NSA Menwith Hill) and Helmsley (North Yorkshire) are regularly checked for any new planning applications and developments.

It was through this work that CAAB (1997) became the first campaign to find out and reveal that the American base at Menwith Hill was to be ‘designated’ the European Ground Relay Station for the Space Based Infra Red System (SBIRS). We found a press release in the public file which said so.

We would be very willing to discuss with other groups and/or individuals who live near an American bases as to how to do this work.

Please contact us.
