Following a meeting on Wednesday [3rd October] with DAA Trust, final arrangements have been made for the installation and commissioning of the lighting/communications post to be erected at Candy’s Field. This is necessary to enable the Air Ambulance to land safely.

Planning permission has already been granted for this structure.

After DAAT and MAT Electrics have been advised of delivery issues with the tubular steel used for making the columns, work will now begin on Thursday 25th October – two weeks later than planned.

Please be aware that there will be contractors working at Candy’s on that day and possibly the 26th.

It is hoped that the installation will be completed on the 25th but may carry over to Friday morning.

There will then be a commissioning period of a few days to ensure that the system is fully operational.
