Government Inspectors have written to the West of England Councils urging them to seriously re-think the plan that has been the subject of examination at the Bath Guildhall. 

A new study carried out for CPRE by the independent New Economics Foundation casts major doubt on the potential economic benefits claimed for the proposed expansion of Bristol Airport.

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.

CPRE Avonside's volunteers have been campaigning to improve the new Joint Spatial Plan for our area, and now we're getting ready to speak at the Examination in Public.

Director's Bulletin June 2019

The future of our countryside and health of our cities is at stake and we need your help

CPRE Avonside has objected to the removal from the Green Belt of the last working farm in the Bristol Green Belt.

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.

CPRE Avonside has submitted the first few in a long list of further comments to the Inspectors who will examine the West of England Joint Spatial Plan, starting this July. The plan has huge implications for the future of our countryside, and the quality of life in our cities.
