Bristol Airport Action Network
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.
There is now an open public consultation process in which YOU can have your say. For details on this, see our Get Involved 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.
Join us and let’s Say No To Airport Expansion together!
