Backwell Parish Council’s response to the Bristol Airport Master Plan

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the Airport Master Plan. We are very pleased that you have had a good response. According to our register Backwell Parish Council (BPC) represents over 200 homes adjacent to the North Side of the Airport in and around Downside Road, Hyatts Wood Road and The Batch. Although there were some problems in the distribution of the leaflet and questionnaire the Airport staff have met many residents including those 11 living along Downside Road in properties backing onto the car parks. Following the recent presentations and residents feedback please see below our initial feedback about your Master Plan proposals and the key issues that affect our village.

Bristol Airport CPO

Compulsory Purchase Backwell Parish Council has requested our Solicitor to give us advice on Compulsory Purchase. Some of our residents are quite worried, particularly those up at Downside as to their rights and their legal position when someone such as Bristol Airport instigate Compulsory Purchase on 8 properties mentioned in their Airport expansion programme. We will post this advice in the next few days. BPC are also in talks with the Airport about the suggested meeting in Backwell Parish hall on the 15th January 2018 and that transport will be laid on. Cllr Steve Mitchell feels that we need an earlier meeting up at Downside with ourselves and residents to fully explain the Airports intentions and more importantly let them know our concerns. Once arranged we will do a leaflet drop. We will also invite our neighbouring councils to attend.

Below is a summary of the key themes of the process and what you can do if you are affected. […]

Good news re funding for Station Road safety proposals

Backwell Parish Council were delighted to hear that Bristol Airport has given them a grant of £7,223-05 towards making Station Road a little bit safer for our pedestrians, particularly the hundreds of children who go to the nearby school. This generous grant will enable the council to complete phase 1 of the improvements, which will improve the road crossings. Signs will also be installed in an attempt to make drivers more aware of their speed and make them slow down on what can be a very unsafe road. The Parish Council can now progress onto phase 2 of the safety improvements which involves working with the school head teacher and governors together with North Somerset Council to look into the potentially dangerous mix of the cars, coaches and students entering via the single entrance to the school in Meadow Close off Station Road. The Chairman of the Parish Council, Cllr [...]
