Bristol Airport is appealing North Somerset Council’s decision to refuse planning for the latest stage of its extension plans. At its January meeting, SPC resolved the following response:
“OBJECT: In response to North Somerset Council’s Planning consultation Saltford Parish Council objects to Bristol Airport’s Planning Appeal that would expand the number of aircraft flights over Saltford on route to or from Bristol Airport with resulting negative implications for noise and air pollution already experienced by residents. Further increases in carbon emissions associated with a growth in aircraft use of Bristol Airport and the expansion proposals would hinder progress in addressing the climate emergency declared by North Somerset Council (February 2019) and the West of England Combined Authority (July 2019) as well as national Government targets (June 2019) for a net zero carbon economy by 2050”.
The deadline for submissions is 6th January 2021, to comment visit the North Somerset Council planning page here, using reference number 20/P/2896/APPCON
