Last winter we started a conversation about our future development. Thank you to all of the individuals and organisations – more than 1,750 of you – who took the time to have your say. This feedback has been incredibly helpful as we progress the development of our long-term Master Plan for Bristol Airport.
Your comments have helped inform our latest thinking, and this document demonstrates how we have listened. In particular, it provides greater clarity on timescales for proposed development, as well as how we intend to manage and mitigate impacts for local communities and the environment.
That is why we have set out clear proposals for our next stage of development, which will enable us to make best use of the existing airport site until the mid-2020s. We are keen to hear your views, so we can take these into consideration in the planning application we will submit to North Somerset Council later this year.
We have also launched our Charter for Future Growth, which begins to set out what benefits can be realised from our continued growth to 20mppa by the 2040s, and how we intend to manage and mitigate any impacts associated with our exciting plans.
We have also set out our latest thinking on our longer term proposals, and we would welcome your views on some specific options for design and mitigation. This consultation will help us to further refine our plans, before we publish our Draft Master Plan. So please take the time to tell us what you think.
Thank you once again for your interest in shaping Bristol Airport’s future – together we can continue this amazing journey.
