Sydney Metro Airport Bankstown has been granted an extension to lodge its Master Plan by 15 October 2014.
The Master Plan is a 20 year strategic vision for the airport which is renewed every five years. The Master Plan includes future land uses, types of permitted development, and noise and environmental impacts.
Sydney Metro Airport Bankstown is subject to a planning framework in the Airports Act 1996 (the Airports Act). As part of the planning framework, airports are required to prepare a Master Plan that incorporates an Environment Strategy.
In developing a master plan, Bankstown Airport must publish a Preliminary Draft Master Plan and invite public comment.
There will be significant opportunities to comment on the Preliminary Draft Master Plan for all Bankstown Airport stakeholders including customers, elected representatives, government agencies and members of the community to provide submissions.
Sydney Metro Airport Bankstown will advise its stakeholders of the consultation period through numerous channels including the local media, consultation groups, direct correspondence and through this website.
Until a new Preliminary Draft Master Plan is approved, the 2005 Master Plan remains in force.
