Cosmic census gets the nation counting stars

Everyone is invited to take part in Star Count 2019 to help map our magical dark skies.

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

The revised topic paper claims to: ‘demonstrate that it is possible to deliver a transport programme that effectively addresses the issues … and has a reasonable chance of being funded.’ (our italics). CPRE contends very strongly that the paper in reality demonstrates quite the opposite, and indeed that the laudable objective is in fact unachievable.
