People are being given the chance to have their say on the decision to scrap a North Somerset Council scheme which would have targeted Bristol Airport passengers parking in North Somerset's greenbelt.

The council had planned to introduce an article four direction on January 1, which would have prohibited the use of land for parking where this was not connected to the land’s primary use. It would have applied to an area of the greenbelt close to the airport, which is frequently used for unauthorised car parking.

However, the council announced last month it would not progress the scheme as it did not have enough time to process the relevant paperwork.
