What is happening with the Foxhunter? Is there going to be a new pub built or housing to replace it.

I have heard it is going to be the new village airport. Apparently you are not allowed motorised planes at the gliding club. If this application fails then the gypsies will be allowed to move in.

Richard, the rumors are correct. The land which was previously the foundation for
the Foxhunter has been purchased by my company Easy Jet. We have outline
planning permission for a new passenger terminal, two runways and an air traffic
The 'Foxhunter' will become Terminal 1 (Arrival/Departure Lounge), with facilities
including McDonalds, Gino's Wine Bar, Duty Free & a Sunglasses Hut. The Bearley
Road will be replaced by Runway 1A, catering for small/medium sized passenger
jets. The Green will become Runway 2A, and will primarily accommodate Airbus
A380's or more than likely Anotov An-225's.
The Holy Trinity church will become Air Traffic Control, this will primarily involve a
refurbishment of the church to include a large 'crow's nest' at the top of the spire
in which we will seat the air traffic controller. He will shout commands to the
planes on their arrival and signal using sticks that float past in the brook.
I think all have that shown their concern regarding the pub and its future use will
be pleased to know that not only is the land being put to good use, but that soon
Snitterfield will become a key hub to importers/exporters in the UK and
subsequently the rest of the world.
I look forward to commencing the demolition works, which as you can see by the
attractive green hoarding that has already been erected, is already underway. If you
have any concerns or wish to get in on our 'early bird' flight deals, please contact
