Objections To Parking Changes At Bristol

Oct 10, 2007
Bristol Airport has come under fire after plans were revealed to use land at a mushroom farm in Langford for Bristol Airport parking. Members of Churchill and Langford Parish Council voted unanimously to oppose to the scheme and refuse the application. Developers Bristol Park and Fly submitted an application for a 1200 space car park at the site in order to increase Bristol Airport parking for the increasing number of passengers.

The reasons why people are opposing the increase in Bristol Airport Parking are because of concerns over light, noise and pollution. Bristol isn't the only airport to come under fire recently as more and more airports across the UK plan to add runways or build new terminals. This has caused debates and campaigns from environmentalists, local councils and residents living close to the airports.

Many feel that instead of increasing the number of car parking spaces that the airport should encourage people to use busses and trains which are more environmentally friendly. Campaigners think that by making Bristol Airport parking so easy people are going to choose to drive to the airport and with the number of cars passing through the airport every day, pollution caused by the airport is going to be at an all time high.

Local residents are also worried about the increase in the amount of traffic that will be caused by extra facilities being created for Bristol Airport parking. More parking facilities means that more people are going to be using their cars so obviously this means that there is going to be an increase in the amount of traffic in and around the airport. This means that people living in Bristol are going to have to sit in more traffic when going on journeys.

Winscombe and Sandford Parish Council voted against the plans for extra facilities for Bristol Airport parking and are planning to send a letter of objection to North Somerset Council. Many people are also worried about the danger that extra traffic is going to cause to the farm near the airport. Many are worried that the pollution and noise is going to have an effect on the animals as well as the increased risk of animals getting hit by drivers who are in a rush to catch their flight.

Those who are campaigning against the car park are hoping that the local authority will consider the needs of local residents rather than be driven by political motives.
