A Bleadon New Hope

Posted on 14th January, 2019

BPC NDP Survey


We hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year. 


Unfortunately, it seems that holiday season is the time when major applications and consultations are put to the public. This month is no different with several applications appearing on BPC's agenda on 14 Jan 19, along with their Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) Questionnaire/Survey, as indicated below:

  • Neighbourhood Development Plan Survey - 31 Jan 19 deadline
    • Now available for all the public to comment by paper or online
  • Bristol Airport Expansion - 26 Jan 19 deadline
    • The last expansion reported to increase flights and noise pollution over Bleadon. This time it is has proposed "operating within a rolling annualised cap of 4,000 night flights between the hours of 23:30 and 06:00 with no seasonal restrictions". NSC's Local Plan Dec 18 Consultation states, "The Airport wants to double permitted air traffic to 20 mppa by the 2040s. In the short-term it seeks a relaxation of existing limits to allow for growth to 12 mppa [million passengers per annum]
  • Purn Way 16 Houses - 14 Jan 19 deadline
    • This application is outside the current Settlement Boundary
  • There are also a number of enforcements noted

Other Activity:

  • There has been a noticeable increase in plastic/rubbish in our community, especially along the A370, so BOB has reported this to NSC and BPC.
  • Development works at Wentwood Drive (Bleadon Hill) commence in January 2019. This new development will consist of 50 new 3 and 4 bedroom homes.
