RAF Henlow to close
Henlow Parish Council has learned, via news reports, of the planned closure of RAF Henlow by 2020. RAF Henlow has been an integral and important part of the Parish of Henlow for the last 100 years, and we are saddened and disappointed by this announcement.
The site hosts around 1,000 employees and is home to many service personnel, who form a significant and valued part of our community. The facilities the RAF kindly offer for use by residents, are greatly valued and will be sadly missed.
Henlow Parish Council has not yet been advised of any plans for the site so we are unable to comment further at this stage except to say that we will work hard with both the MOD and Central Bedfordshire Council to achieve the best possible outcome for the people of Henlow and the surrounding area.
The Parish Council will keep parishioners updated on discussions with parties as they occur.
