Replacing the Gravel Gerties?

No planning application for the warhead assembly facilities (Gravel Gerties) at Burghfield has been submitted by the MoD yet. Earlier this year the Ministry of Defence in a written answer to the House of Commons stated that they would apply before the end of 2008 for planning permission to replace the warhead assembly facilities, known as Gravel Gerties, at Burghfield. The West Berkshire Planning Department later confirmed that this application was due to be heard in December, but so far it hasn't appeared on the lists of applications published each week by West Berks.
