Unit History: RAF Locking

RAF Locking
RAF Locking was an RAF base just outside Weston-super-Mare in Somerset. It was the home of the RAF’s No.1 Radio School until its relocation in 1999 to RAF Cosford.
 
The base was bought by the South West of England Regional Development Agency and the agency English Partnerships from the Ministry of Defence in 2002. The agencies and North Somerset Council intend to attract high-tech companies to the site. In October 2006, Oxford Instruments Plasma Technology became one of the first such companies to announce its move there. Proposals are under consideration for an employment and residential development for the site that could deliver 25 ha of employment space and up to 1800 new homes
