Will residential parking be affected during the Airshow?

Residents parking will remain unchanged for FIA 2024. For the past two shows we in conjunction with both Hampshire County Council and Rushmoor Borough Council operated a residents parking permit scheme in some North Camp Roads. This had a mixed reaction from the local community, with this in mind and taking in account there is no longer the public weekend which generated a significant change in parking demand on the local roads it has been agreed that this won’t be implemented for this show.

There will still be Residents Parking Only signage at the entrance to roads in North Camp on the western side of Alexandra Road, and Hampshire County Councils enforcement team will be available in their normal way and where possible support residents on occasions when obstruction of driveways may occur.

We will monitor parking in the area throughout show week and record feedback from residents, road users and Hampshire County Councils enforcement team to review for future shows.


Will we still be able to access North Camp shops?

Yes, the local diversions still allow for access to the shops which will be open as normal.


Will the public bus service still be running?

Yes, the normal service will be provided by the operator, however there may be some minor delays during peak period.


What if I have a funeral, moving house etc. during the show?
