About the Bristol Airport planning application

Latest update

Bristol Airport has submitted an appeal to the Planning Inspectorate against the council’s decision to refuse planning permission for the expansion of the airport.

The Government’s Planning Inspectorate (PINs) agreed that Bristol Airport Ltd could submit updated information before the appeal started. This information was received on 30 November and was the subject of a period of public consultation expiring on 6 January. Almost 2,000 comments were received and all of them have been forwarded to PINs for the Inspectors’ consideration.

On 11 January, PINs formally started the appeal process and published the initial details and timetable. The inquiry will start at 10am on Tuesday 20 July and is currently scheduled to run for 40 sitting days, with a two week break scheduled from 16 to 27 August, and a further week’s break from 20 to 24 September.

As required by the appeal regulations, we have notified all those who commented on the application that the appeal has started and forwarded copies of all the comments we received to PINs.

The deadline to send comments about the appeal to PINs was on 22 February.
