The Community Aviation Consultation Group (CACG) is an advisory group that supports Melbourne Airport to carry out appropriate consultation in all areas of its planning and operations. The group is one of a number of engagement forums facilitated by Melbourne Airport that enables local residents to raise issues for a response.
The role and purpose of the CACG is to:
- Enable airport operators, residents affected by airport operations, local authorities, airport users, and other interested parties to exchange information on issues relating to airport operations and impacts
- Allow matters to be raised and taken into account by the airport operator, with a genuine desire to resolve issues that emerge
- Discuss and share information between the airport and the communities affected by its operations and plans
- Complement and support the consultative requirements already established for Master Plans and Major Development Plans (MDPs)
Melbourne Airport's CACG is facilitated by an Independent Chair and comprises membership from the Australian Mayoral Aviation Council (AMAC), Trades Hall Council, Local Government, the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) and local residents. Meetings are attended by the Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development (DOIRD), Airservices Australia and Melbourne Airport.
The CACG meets on a quarterly basis.
The minutes from previous meetings can be found below.
Minutes are published online once they have been approved by the group.
