Keynsham Town Council to host meeting on proposed airport expansion

10/02/2018

How will Bristol Airport's expansion affect you? Perhaps you live on the flight path and are concerned about the increased number of flights or maybe you're pleased you'll no longer have to travel to a London Airport to catch your holiday flight.

Keynsham Town Council will be hosting a public meeting to discuss the proposed expansion of Bristol Airport in The Space, Keynsham on Monday 25th February at 7pm.

The meeting will be chaired by Council Chairman, Cllr Clive Fricker.

Hilary Burn, of the Parish Councils Airport Association, will be speaking on behalf of the organisation and providing information on their response to the most recent planning application from the Airport.

We hope to have representatives from our neighbouring parishes, Compton Dando, Corston and Whitchurch, who are on the flight paths.

Despite our request, Bristol Airport has declined to send someone to speak.

This will also be a Q and A session for residents.

You can see the full planning application here: https://planning.n-somerset.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=summary&keyVal=PJML85LPMKI00
