Bristol Airport expansion

Plane at Bristol Airport
Sean Glossop

Bristol Airport is proposing a doubling of passenger numbers, more night flights, and even more parking spaces in their recent planning application to North Somerset District Council.

An expanded Bristol Airport would be a disaster for local and national Climate Commitments, as well as tranquillity, air pollution, and congestion on local roads. Our report commissioned from the New Economics Foundation shows that suggested local economic benefits of expansion have been overestimated.
