Just seen this on the Vulcan XH558's Facebook page.

"Just received the latest guardian news letter and I see that the proposed site for the new hangar has great crested newts won't that now cause significant problems getting planning permission?"

That won't take long to sort...... Took the M1 junc 20 Crick, guys 7 months to sort that out

Yep, that's about the timeframe.
The relocation is usually pretty easy ( or did the J20 guys squidge them with a Euklid then say "sorry 'bout that'  :)) ) it's the making sure none come back which takes the time.......usually they wait until after the breeding season, which I think is around March or April.

Or is this a cunning ploy by VTTS not to even start the hanger project ?  ;D,I would still be interested in having my original question regarding what funding reserves the Trust holds answered as that quite obviously will have a huge impact on the project getting off the ground or are they hoping that a rich benefactor will step up to the plate and fund the entire project ?

Them people are useless.
Where I used to work, they found the newts but completely missed the various species of orchid ( including marsh orchids ) growing in an area which was down to be turned into a car park.
( Most of said orchids were promply dug up & relocated to my back garden, where they continue to grow & spread  ;D )

And back to VTST's accounts....
If anyone's looked on UKAR you'll have seen my comparison between VTST & YAM -- Despite being much bigger, having many more airframes and being an active museum, YAM is primarily staffed by unpaid volunteers and they only have 5 full-time and 5 part-time employees ( and 3 contractors )
( Their accounts are here, if anyone wants to look : http://apps.charitycommission.gov.uk/Showcharity/RegisterOfCharities/DocumentList.aspx?RegisteredCharityNumber=516766&SubsidiaryNumber=0&DocType=AccountList )

Planning application has been submitted and could take up to 10 weeks for the council to make their decision.

Nothing showing on Doncaster Council's website regarding the planning application.
Maybe it hasn't been entered online yet.

Just a quick note.  I'm not being evasive but more important things have popped up at home (specifically, my father-in-law to be who was rushed in with DVTs and - after a few days - has now had most of one leg amputated) so that is now my main priority.  I will come back to the various points raised & do my best to answer them once I've got on top of the domestic situation (and the huge backlog of work).

fully understood Eddie, hope he recovers quickly. In the grand scheme of things answers about the Vulcan are far less important and the lowest priority for you - I'm sure we can all wait for however long it takes for your domestic and work situation to stabilise -

very best wishes
Andy
