Home Office announces virtual Scampton community engagement event

RAF Scampton gates with notice served

The Home Office has, this afternoon, announced that it will be hosting a virtual Scampton community engagement event on 27 September via Microsoft Teams.

The event is open to those living or working in the old service family accommodation and the areas of Scampton, Lincoln, Welton, Dunholme, Aisthorpe, Brattleby, Cammeringham and North Carlton. Ingham and Sturton by Stow have also now been included.

The event is being held virtually in order to reach a wider range of people within the community, as in-person engagement is limited to smaller numbers due to security concerns. This virtual event is intended to support face-to-face engagement and more in-person sessions are expected to be held in October.

There are currently 1000 tickets available, although the Home Office may look to increase this number based on demand.

Attendees will need to sign up for the event via Eventbrite here Scampton community engagement event and will need to provide their home address or work address for verification. You will then be sent a link to join the virtual event.

Meanwhile, following on from West Lindsey District Council serving a Temporary Stop Notice to prevent the Home Office from continuing with development work at RAF Scampton, the council was today (Thursday 14 September) granted full access to the site.

Technical officers assessed all activities across the site and will need time to consider the findings.

The council would like to thank the community for their support and communications in providing information on any activity taking place on the site and we will continue to keep  people updated with information where we can.
