Chance to comment on the future of Filton Airfield

The future of Filton Airfield

South Gloucestershire Council (SGC) will be giving Patchway residents a chance to comment on the future of Filton Airfield at a public exhibition on Tuesday 11th October, from 3pm to 7:30pm.

The exhibition will summarise the feedback received in response to the Council’s Position Statement that was published in June, after BAE Systems had announced its intention to close the airfield.

The event, to be held at the new Patchway Locality Hub in Rodway Road, will provide residents with a further opportunity to express their views on the future of the airfield.

The exhibition material will also be available to view on the SGC website from Monday 3rd October at

The Council says it is particularly interested to hear what residents think about the following questions and asks that responses to the consultation are structured in this way:

  1. Do you accept that the closure of Filton Airfield is the only realistic option? Yes/No
  2. If No to (1) above, what would you suggest as a way to keep the airfield viable? Do you have any information to support this?
  3. If Yes to (1) above, how do you think the airfield should be reused/redeveloped? What would you wish to see included in the redevelopment?

Responses may be emailed to or posted to South Gloucestershire Council, Spatial Planning Team, PO Box 2081, South Gloucestershire. See the consultation page for the Council’s privacy statement.

The same manned exhibition is also being staged at Cribbs Causeway Business Centre on Monday 3rd October and BAWA (Filton) on Monday 17th October.

Unstaffed exhibitions will be staged at Bradley Stoke Library from Tuesday 4th October to Tuesday 11th October and at Filton and Patchway Libraries from Tuesday 18th October until Monday 24th October.
