OVERVIEW

Greenham Common airfield was built to the Class A airfield standard, the main feature of which was a set of three converging runaways each containing a concrete runaway for takeoffs and landings, optimally placed at 60 degree angles to each other in a triangular pattern connecting to an enclosing perimeter track, of a standard width of 50 feet. In late 1943, Greenham Common airfield was turned over to the USAAF Ninth Air Force and remained under the control of the USAAF until 1992 when it was handed back to the RAF and in 1993 handed back to the crown for sale.

Kingston worked with a development team to assess the feasibility of converting the existing facility into a commercial mixed use scheme.
