Bristol Airport Expansion

Published: 28 January 2020

Keynsham Town Council has sent an official objection to North Somerset Council to the planning application proposing the expansion to Bristol Airport.

In a letter sent on January 14th, the Town Council confirmed they would like to 'strongly object' to the airport's expansion, citing the negative impacts on the environment, increased transport and travel problems in the area and doubts about the benefit the expansion would have on the local economy as reasons for their response.
