No expansion should be permitted at the airport until multi model public transport links are available. This needs to be forward looking and bold e.g. a rail link to Temple Meads, or frequent rapid transit connections with a priority lane connecting the airport to Bristol, Weston, Nailsea, Portishead and Clevedon.

 

Subject to that investment and provision, Option 3 (removal of the airport area from the GB and the safeguarding of additional land) is supported.
