More 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
