The 2018 Melbourne Airport Master Plan has now been approved by the Federal Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for being a part of the 2018 Master Plan process.
Prior to approving the 2018 Master Plan, the Minister requested that several changes be made to the document. Essentially these changes related to typographical errors, ensuring the document used consistent language and further clarification of runway modes as outlined by Airservices Australia and CASA.
The Airports Act 1997 requires all federally leased airports to prepare a Master Plan every 5 years to guide the future growth and development of the airport over the next 20 years.
The Master Plan:
- Set the strategic direction for the airport
- Provide a plan for the development of the airport site
- Indicate to the public the intended uses of the site and development proposals
- Include provisions to reduce potential conflicts between the uses of the site
- Ensure that uses of the site are compatible with areas surrounding the airport
- Ensure compliance with environmental legislation and standards
