Why Lysander Park?
It is important that the future of the site reflects the legacy of the past.
In the Second World War, Number 16 RAF squadron were based at Redhill Aerodrome. Their task was to support ground units with reconnaissance, message-dropping and artillery-spotting sorties.
The Westland Lysander was chosen as the perfect aircraft for the crucial role of ‘co-operation and liaison’.
The dictionary tells us that ‘liaison’ is ‘communication or cooperation which facilitates a close working relationship between people or organisations.’
Just like the aircraft’s key wartime role, Lysander Park in Redhill will build a vibrant prosperous new community in the spirit of cooperation and liaison.
