Jobs joy as National Composites Centre expansion gets go-ahead
A MAJOR expansion of the National Composites Centre at the Bristol and Bath Science Park in Emersons Green has been given the go-ahead.
The centre develops the next generation of materials for industry and councillors were told the extension was crucial to the development of new aircraft wings and would affect thousands of other jobs in the wider area.
Councillors voted unanimously to approve the plans after being told that the area could lose jobs to France if the scheme did not go ahead.
The council’s strategic sites delivery committee was told concerns about the impact of the new building on the landscape and a nearby farm were outweighed by the benefits to the public.
