Bristol Airport Action Network (BAAN) is a coalition of groups and individuals working to oppose Bristol Airport’s expansion plans.
In 2019, Bristol Airport submitted plans to expand from 10 to 12 million passengers per year, with an extra 23,800 flights including 4,000 night flights.
Planning permission was refused by North Somerset Council in February 2020 – a decision ratified in March 2020. Later in the year, Bristol Airport announced that it would be appealing this decision and requested an inquiry, led by a planning inspector.
This inquiry begins on July 20th 2021. BAAN will be represented as a Rule 6 party alongside North Somerset Council and other concerned groups. We have prepared a case and are confident in the strength of our position.
To access the latest information on the Bristol Airport Inquiry starting on 20th July please go to our updates page.
If Bristol Airport are successful in their appeal, there will be an extra:
✈️ 23,800 flights and two million passengers a year
✈️ 10,000 car movements a day
✈️ one million tonnes of carbon emitted a year
Our position is that this airport expansion (and others that are planned across the UK) is not legally compliant with the Climate Change Act, The Paris Agreement and the Government’s commitment to be carbon neutral by 2050 and MUST BE STOPPED.
