Respond to Bristol Airport’s Planning Application – deadline 26th January 2019

Wednesday, 16 January 2019 09:52

Bristol airport’s planning application is for growth to 12 million passengers per annum, phase 1 of growth to 20 mppa. 

This is a 50% increase from 2017 when Bristol Airport reached 8 mppa and will mean a throughput 97,373 aircraft movements in a 12 month calendar period, a flight almost every three minutes. All tranquillity will be lost during the day and the airport wants more flights in the summer months.

There will be a further extension to the ‘Silver Zone’ car park of approximately 2,700 additional spaces for all-year-round use, in the green belt. There will be major congestion on the A38 spilling over to the A370 and on to rural roads through rural villages.

We have two documents below, from the Parish Council Airport’s Association, to guide you through making a response to this application.
