People will have the chance to voice their opinion on the Bristol Airport expansion plans at two public meetings.

Wrington Parish Council is inviting people to attend the meetings at the village’s All Saints’ Church, in Station Road, to talk about how the expansion plans will affect them.

The Times revealed last month that plans have been submitted to North Somerset Council for the airport’s expansion to cater for more than 12 million passengers every year.

The council will address issues such as how many more flights there might be and gridlock on the roads.

The meetings will take place at the church on Saturday afternoon at 2pm and Tuesday at 7.30pm.

The plans were discussed at Kenn’s Parish Council’s planning meeting on Monday and is due to be talked about at Backwell’s meeting next Tuesday.
