NORTH Weald Bassett Parish Council has received a total of £130,000 from the HMRC in respect of the Inland Border Facility being located on North Weald Airfield.
The facility closed on September 11 with the Rayley Lane site currently being decommissioned.
Parish council chairman Alan Buckley told Monday’s parish council meeting the parish council had received three payments – an initial £50,000 and two further payments of £40,000.
District and parish councillor Nigel Bedford added that HMRC had also contributed £100,000 for a flood relief project on Church Lane, North Weald.
Epping Forest District Council has also received rent for the use of facility which opened in January 2021.
The site was one of several Inland Border Facility locations where officials
checked the documents of HGV drivers entering and leaving the country after the UK left the EU.
The site operated 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
