Local community fund

Following on from the announcement of Bristol Airport being granted permission to expand to 12 million passengers per annum, a new Local Community Fund will be introduced in early 2024.

A decision has been made by the Committee Members to pause any new applications to the Local Community Fund until the new scheme has been implemented and guidelines published.

We will update our website once the new scheme has been agreed and open to local projects and organisations to apply.
