Comment

The Parish Councils Airport Association has made detailed comments on the proposals in respect of Bristol Airport which LAPC support.

Particular concerns for LAPC are

Increased noise from the airport caused by increased overflying including night flights.

Increased traffic and poor accessibility of the airport from Long Ashton owing to lack of public transport.

Encroachment into the green belt

Lack of compliance with existing planning agreements (e.g. multi story car park).

Option 1 would be the preferred option. The airport has or will soon reach a natural limit on passenger numbers.  Its impact on the green belt and traffic is already substantial.  The wider effects of further expansion, if permitted, on traffic congestion and pollution need to be considered.

Summary
Option 1 would be the preferred option. The airport has or will soon reach a natural limit on passenger numbers. Its impact on the green belt and traffic is already substantial. The wider effects of further expansion, if permitted, on traffic congestion and pollution need to be considered.
