Stowey Sutton Parish Council support Option 1 for the following reasons:

With growth beyond 10 mppa there will be no respite from ground and air noise during the day. And Bristol Airport has made it clear that it wishes to change the night movement limit which will allow more air transport movements in the summer months.  This will have an adverse impact on residents under the flight path.

Above 10 mppa there will be increased congestion on rural roads and the A38 and A370. Any road improvements shown in the Joint Spatial Plan will not occur until at least 2025.

There will be a growth in carbon emissions and, to date, the Joint Spatial Plan and this local Plan have not stated how a further increase in emissions fits within sustainable development and the Climate Change Act 2008.

Stowey Sutton Parish Council do not support Options 2, 3 & 4 due to the many uncertainties surrounding issues such as: road improvements, delivery of light rail, and the impacts on the environment are uncertain and unknown.

Do not support Options 2,3 and 4
