This application relates to a site outside of Ministry of Defence (MOD) statutory safeguarding areas (SOSA). We can therefore confirm that the MOD has no safeguarding objections to this proposal. In the interests of air safety, the MOD requests the single proposed exhaust stack is fitted with aviation warning lighting. The stack should be fitted with a minimum intensity 25 candela omni directional flashing red light or equivalent infra-red light fitted at the highest practicable point of the structure. Whilst we have no safeguarding objections to this application, the height of the development will necessitate that aeronautical charts and mapping records are amended. Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) Safeguarding therefore requests that, as a condition of any planning permission granted, the developer must notify UK DVOF & Powerlines at the Defence Geographic Centre with the following information prior to development commencing:a. Precise location of development. b. Date of commencement of construction. c. Date of completion of construction. d. The height above ground level of the tallest structure. e. The maximum extension height of any construction equipment. f. Details of aviation warning lighting fitted to the structure(s) This information can be sent by e-mail to the Defence Geographic Centre at: [email protected] or post it to: D-UKDVOF & Power Lines Geospatial Air Information Team Defence Geographic Centre DGIA Elmwood Avenue Feltham Middlesex TW13 7AH
