Your airport: your views. Towards 2050

Closed 6 Jul 2018

Opened 14 May 2018


A conversation about the airport’s future began towards the end of last year, with a consultation set against the backdrop of our distinguished past, presenting a window on the busy airport of today, and a glimpse into an ambitious future. In ‘Your airport: your views. A World of Oppurtunities’ (available at www.bristolairport. com/future), we asked what you thought our Master Plan should deliver.

This consultation provides an update on the preparation of our Master Plan, including a summary of your feedback from our previous consultation, our latest thinking, and our ambitions for the future. We explain how we aim to give more certainty, particularly with respect to setting out the next step in our phased approach to growth.   

We hope that our vision for growth is met with wide support across the South West, South Wales and beyond. We welcome your continued interest in shaping Bristol Airport’s future. A questionnaire is available at the bottom of this page, and will be available in hard copy at each of our exhibitions, details of which are below. Our document 'Your Airport: your views. Towards 2050', referred to during the questionnaire, is also available at the bottom of this page, and hard copies will be available to take away at the exhibitions.


Why We Are Consulting

Last winter we started a conversation about our future development. Thank you to all of the individuals and organisations – more than 1,750 of you – who took the time to have your say. This feedback has been incredibly helpful as we progress the development of our long-term Master Plan for Bristol Airport.
Your comments have helped inform our latest thinking, and this document demonstrates how we have listened.  In particular, it provides greater clarity on timescales for proposed development, as well as how we intend to manage and mitigate impacts for local communities and the environment.
That is why we have set out clear proposals for our next stage of development, which will enable us to make best use of the existing airport site until the mid-2020s. We are keen to hear your views, so we can take these into consideration in the planning application we will submit to North Somerset Council later this year.
We have also launched our Charter for Future Growth, which begins to set out what benefits can be realised from our continued growth to 20mppa by the 2040s, and how we intend to manage and mitigate any impacts associated with our exciting plans.
We have also set out our latest thinking on our longer term proposals, and we would welcome your views on some specific options for design and mitigation. 
Our consultation will run until 6 July 2018, with the following exhibitions being held across our region. 
Please note that for events held at the Hampton by Hilton Hotel you will be issued with a parking validation ticket at the event to exit the hotel car park.

What Happens Next

After the consultation we will publish a report summarising your feedback and explaining how we are taking it into account.
Your views, together with further analysis and study, will result in our Draft Master Plan. You will have another opportunity to have your say when we share this with you and ask for your views in late 2018.
We will share our detailed plans and proposals with all stakeholders, setting out how we propose to mitigate any effects on the local community and environment identified.
