Regarding key issue 3 (the implications of the proposed expansion of Bristol Airport in terms of factors such as noise, surface transport, parking, built development and Green Belt changes): Bristol airport is within the ‘setting’ of the Mendip Hills AONB and as such factors should include the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The Mendip Hills AoNB is a factor regarding implications of proposed Bristol airport expansion, as airport is within setting of AoNB.
