Permalink In a very controversial planning application submitted to North Somerset Council in June 2009, major expansion of Bristol International Airport is proposed.
As well as new terminal buildings and associated car parking improvements, a plan to resite the main aviation fuel depot is a key part of the submitted plans.
The existing above ground fuel storage facility next to the runways is to be decommissioned and a new underground fuel tank farm is to be constructed at the north west corner of the perimeter near Downside village.
But rather alarmingly, the new jet fuel depot is to be sited in close proximity to both the public car parks AND a proposed hotel development!
and the network is fully described on a public website:-Rather interestingly, in December 2006 there was a suspicious flurry of rather hurried Mo D planning applications to various UK councils for special "deemed consent" approval, apparently exploiting a legal loophole.This sudden rush was because from 7th December 2006, these GPSS depots were no longer exempt, through Crown Immunity, from planning laws relating to the storage and transportation of hazardous substances.Thank you for visiting Part 3 of Did you reach this Part 3 from a search engine?You should really explore ALL the site by starting with Part 1.

For safety reasons, the locations of these pipelines are marked with identification posts which look rather like bird feeding tables with brightly coloured roofs (as pictured further below).
