Background Information

The Government submitted to the North Yorks Moors National Park Authority an independently produced Environmental and Land Use Report (available at www.mod.uk) into the upgrade to support the Government view that formal planning consultation was not required. Following a period of consultation, the Local Authority agreed that the work required to complete the upgrade did not require formal planning consent as there was no new building development or material change of use for the site.

The UK has access to all the data for early warning of missile attack and for the tracking of space objects. The same arrangements will continue after the upgrade and will also apply to the new data.
