Eyes-on Bristol Airport

BAAN are developing a website tracker which is intended to help concerned citizens and groups check that Bristol Airport are abiding by planning conditions concerning the number of flights (take off and landing) and their timings, in line with the planning conditions attached to their recent planning permission; ref 18/P/5118/OUT.

Here is a short film explaining what we are trying to achieve

There were numerous planning conditions attached to the Bristol Airport planning permission but the three being checked by this website are:

  • the total number of flights (with a maximum of 85,990 in a calendar year),
  • the number of ‘night flights’ (defined as between 23.30 and 06.00) with a maximum of 4000 allowed in a calendar year,
  • the number of flights during the ‘shoulder periods’ (between 06.00 and 07.00 and 23.00 and 23.30) with a maximum of 9500 allowed in each calendar year.

The tool has been built by Bristol Airport Action Network (BAAN) in a project supported by University of Bath, University of Bristol, University of the West of England and Watershed.

The raw data is provided by a not-for-profit organisation based in Switzerland whose partners include the University of Oxford and the University of Kaiserslautern in Germany.
