The NSW Government is calling on the community to provide its feedback as part of an independent review into legislation governing Warnervale Airport.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said the review of the Warnervale Airport (Restrictions) Act (1996) will consider the best way to regulate the Airport into the future.
“Warnervale Airport is an important regional asset and feedback from the community will play an important role in determining its future,” Mr Crouch said.
“I encourage all local residents, Aero Club members and interested stakeholders to take a look at the terms of reference and provide your feedback or come along to a public forum on 28 February.”
Member of the Legislative Council Taylor Martin said the review will provide more certainty about the future operations of the Airport.
“We want to ensure we get the best outcome for this asset and the region and so we’re asking the community to be part of the process and provide feedback,” Mr Martin said.
The independent review is being led by Abigail Goldberg who has extensive experience in infrastructure, resources, urban planning and transport. Ms Goldberg will be supported by aviation industry expert Peter Fiegehen, and will report back to the Government at the end of March.
The review will make recommendations on how to best govern the Airport into the future.
Submissions to the review can be made until 28 February and a public forum will also be held on 28 February at the Wyong office of Central Coast Council.
