Bristol Airport Expansion

Bristol Airport is proposing an doubling of passenger numbers, more night flights, and even more parking spaces in their recent planning application to North Somerset District Council. An expanded Bristol Airport would be a disaster.

A brand new independent study, commissioned for CPRE by the independent think tank, the New Economics Foundation, casts major doubt on the potential economic benefits claimed for the proposed expansion of Bristol Airport.

Nothing we have seen to date changes our position that this expansion will be damaging to the landscape and environment of North Somerset, and we believe that the economic case that is driving this expansion is seriously questionable.
