Bristol International Airport’s (BIA) planning application for its future development has been registered by North Somerset Council, marking the start of a six week public consultation on the proposals.
Designed to enable BIA to handle 10 million passengers a year in a decade from now, the plans include a range of measures to mitigate the impact of the airport’s activity on the local community and the environment.
The development will create over 3,500 jobs, drive increased spending in the South West by overseas visitors of £1.1 billion, and generate additional income to the region of £1.9 billion to £2.0 billion over the period 2008 to 2019/2020.
Robert Sinclair, Chief Executive Officer at BIA, said:
“The planning application sets out our vision for a world class airport in the South West, delivering an improved passenger experience while at the same time making sure we are at the forefront of sustainability in the aviation sector.
“The consultation provides an opportunity for passengers, staff, local businesses and other stakeholders to have their say on these exciting proposals.”
Comments should be made direct to North Somerset Council, quoting application reference 09/P/1020/OT2.
