Wethersfield Airfield Prison Proposals

Finchingfield Parish Council is objecting to the proposals to build two mega prisons at Wethersfield Airfield.  We have joined the Wethersfield Airfield Scrutiny Committee (WASC), a group of local parish councils which are working together to oppose the plans and look at alternative uses for the site which are more beneficial to the local community.

The Fields Association are running the SWAP (Stop Wethersfield Airfield Prisons) campaign and are working independently but in co-operation with WASC. All SWAP information can be accessed via this link: The Fields Association
