Our vision is for Daedalus to become a premier location for aviation, aerospace engineering and advanced manufacturing businesses, creating many skilled employment opportunities for local people, which is underpinned by a vibrant and sustainable airfield.
Building on the existing general aviation uses, the airfield will be an attractive destination for visiting aircraft and will offer the hangars, facilities and services to attract more corporate and commercial aviation activities, allowing it to be self-sustaining in the medium term and contribute positively to the medium term and contribute positively to the local community.
Following months of work to prepare a framework for articulating the future direction of Daedalus Airfield, Fareham Borough Council has today published its draft Vision and outline strategy ahead of the document being considered by the meeting of the Executive on Monday 13 July.
A period of consultation will commence over the summer and early autumn, during which time residents and interested will have an opportunity to put forward views of their own and respond to the draft Vision and outline strategy as it currently stands.
Cllr Seán Woodward, Executive Leader of Fareham Borough Council, said: "Daedalus airfield is a vital asset to our community and it is important to ensure that we make the most of it in a way that serves the present and future needs of both businesses and residents.
"We are making significant investment in the airfield and providing space for business to invest and develop with access to a new runway. People can train at CEMAST, set up and expand their businesses all in one place."
