PosterMore Bristol Airport Expansion
Bristol Airport has launched a Stage II consultation to help prepare its strategic Master Plan for long term airport expansion up to possibly 20 million passengers per year by the 2040s. The consultation also includes a more immediate proposal for a planning application for expansion to accommodate 12 million passengers a year to be submitted to North Somerset Council this autumn. In 2017, the Airport achieved 8 million passengers per year.
Only 1,750 people responded to the Airport’s first consultation last winter. Given the enormous change to transport infrastructure and the local landscape that such expansion of the Airport is likely to entail, it is critically important that everyone makes their views heard, whatever they may be.
The deadline for consultation responses is 6 July 2018 and they can be made online or by calling the Airport for a consultation form on 0800 915 9892.
There are also a number of public drop-in events being held in local villages until June 30th – click here for more information  or call the Airport on the above number for details.

Litter Tree

The village Litter Pick on Sunday 25 March saw many residents come out and help to clear up litter that has accumulated around the village over the past few months. Nearly all of Butcombe and quite a bit of Nempnett Thrubwell was walked and 15 bags were collected, most of them pretty full. Councillor Justin Milward has created a display "The Litter Tree" showing some of the litter collected.
