Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 3: Spatial Policies Delivering a Prosperous Economy CS23: Bristol International Airport CS23: Bristol International Airport

The Policy on the Airport is a little vague at the moment, but I would assume that by the time you publish your Core Strategy, things would be considerably clearer with respect to the current planning application. As you will be aware the Government are currently consulting on a National Planning Statement on port development. As you move towards submission I suggest that you monitor how this document progresses, ensuring that there is no conflict with the finalised version of this document.

Cap growth until appropriate road infrastructure is in place. Reflect UK Aviation Report on Climate Change. 8mppa is closer to the natural limits of the road network and junctions which are overloaded at 10mppa. Reducing rate of growth will help control carbon emissions. The concept of "leakage" on surface routes to other airports is not realistic given better surface and public transport connections elsewhere. Development at BIA must be seen in the context of Policy CS3.

If expansion allowed, cap passengers at 8 mppa until emissions reduced and access improved, otherwise growth would conflict with other CS policies. Clarify how satisfactory resolution of environmental issues will be demonstrated; benchmarks for this to be published beforehand. White Paper now dated. Alternatives not considered. Surface access planning should not rely on BIA data.

Welcomes 3.341 - 'importance of assessing local impacts'. Separate AAP and Master Plan review to avoid conflicts of interest over monitoring/enforcement, Green Belt. AAP should await effects of current proposal. Airport growth not 'a by-product of population and employment' (3.347) - more related to economic growth in the sub-region/higher incomes, increased availability of local airline services and low-cost business model - whose viability might be impacted on by future operating conditions.

NSC should take more responsibility to ensure that the environmental impacts of noise, air quality and increased traffic on local roads, lighting pollution and carbon emissions are addressed satisfactorily. The developer taking responsibility for its own environmental impacts will not limit or reduce impacts to its core business, but only seek to mitigate the effects. It is essential to have an independent environmental impact assessment carried out.

Policy CS23 should be amended so that proposals for the development of the airport will be required to demonstrate the satisfactory resolution of environmental issues, including the impact of growth on the natural environment. The Trust would be interested in taking part in the consultation on the review of the Airport Master Plan and the development of an Area Action Plan which is referred to in this policy.

Core Strategy should address effect of proposed development at Bristol International Airport on the strategic road network. Welcomes reference to assessing the impact on 'surface access infrastructure' but seeks specific mention of strategic road network. In light of potential traffic implications of future growth of the Airport, the Agency also wishes to be involved in the earliest stages of preparation of an airport AAP or DPD alongside the Master Plan review.

Policy not supported. Given the extensive objections to unlimited expansion of BIA and the number of major problems that need to be resolved it is considered that this policy may be oversimplistic. As the current planning application will need to be determined shortly (unless called in) this policy may be outdated. There is also concern at the criteria to be used to judge if the policy requirements are met.

Oppose airport expansion on CO2 emissions and other environmental grounds.

It was noted that the proposals for Bristol International Airport mention environmental issues and their impact on the surrounding communities, there is no direct mention on limiting noise pollution. This particular issue has not been addressed to any satisfactory degree by the airport and still remains a hotly discussed topic by the residents of Congresbury, who remain greatly affected by the noise of early morning and late night flights.
