Bristol Airport has launched a ten week public consultation on its future expansion plans.

The airport’s email to Corston Parish Council says:

“We are in the process of preparing a new Master Plan for Bristol Airport which will set out potential development required over the next three decades and beyond.

As a valued stakeholder we are seeking your views on our priorities and initial concepts for developing Bristol Airport to serve up to 20 million passengers a year by the mid-2040s.

 Your feedback will help shape our draft Master Plan, which will be subject to further consultation next spring. Find out more about the consultation here and let us know your views by completing the short online questionnaire.”

A short video setting out their plans also available here.

Corston PC will respond but we are also encouraging  parishioners to review the airport’s plans and respond individually.

    The amount of traffic on the A39 passing through the Village of Corston has increased considerably over the last two years and many use this route by car as a more pleasant and quicker journey sign posted from Bath to Bristol Airport, along the A4. avoiding congestion at Saltford and Brislington,unless you are useing the Airport Bus from Bath on the A4 with bus lanes. With the Airports estimated buisness use at present 15/17!% predicted to increase with expansion, then shorter,sometimes daily buisness trips will only increase the amount of traffic through the village.There seems no immediate plans for more public transport that I feel with car emission our health will be at risk.
    As for increasing late night and early morning incomeing flights possibly larger aircraft, causing sleep deprevation ,I am inclined to agree with the’ Parish Council Bristol Airport Expansion Association’ that a rise from the present 8 million passengers per year to 10million is more preferable for this rural and predominantly green belt area.
