As the fifth largest airport in the United Kingdom, Bristol Airport serviced over 8million passengers in 2017.
This represented an increase of 8% in one year, and demonstrates the need to meet demand for air travel to and from Bristol Airport and the South West.
A need for growth.
Bristol Airport recognised the need to grow and improve facilities, inviting the public and stakeholders to help shape a Master Plan of aims for the airport by 2050.
LRS provided land referencing services to The Bristol Airport Ltd as part of a multi million pound scheme to increase its capacity.
The airport group is considering the possibility of widening The A38 between Bristol and Burnham-on-Sea. A planning application was submitted to North Somerset Council in late 2018, seeking approval for development to handle up to 12 million passengers a year by the mid 2020s.
The proposed development includes new infrastructure, improvements to existing facilities and operational changes, as well as almost 5000 additional parking spaces. These measures are part of the airport’s plan to reduce the numbers of passengers travelling to London airports, with an intention to become carbon neutral for direct emissions by 2025.
