From today’s Thanet Gazette; “The Manston airport radar is being removed after it was sold to a third party in 2015.
A spokesman for the owners of the closed airport, Stone Hill Park, confirmed a crane has been on site and the radar will be removed.
The airport has been closed since May 2014 and majority shareholders Chris Musgrave and Trevor Cartner want to create a mixed use development of the site.
Stone Hill Park are expected to submit a planning application to Thanet council next month.
American firm RiverOak, twice rejected by Thanet council as an indemnity partner, has submitted a pre-application Development Consent Order (DCO), to bypass Thanet council by taking their case to central government.
However, Thanet council is still seeking an indemnity partner to compulsory-purchase the site.”
