Sydney Airport will be releasing a preliminary draft master plan for public consultation in mid-2013.
A master plan is a 20-year land use plan for the airport that will outline our vision for the operation and development of Australia’s premier airport to the year 2033.
Sydney Airport is Australia’s most significant piece of transport infrastructure, generating $27.6 billion in economic activity a year and 283,700 full-time jobs – equivalent to 2 per cent of the national economy. Some 37 million passengers use the airport each year
The master plan will include a development concept to evolve the airport into two integrated terminal precincts, each serving international, domestic and regional services, as well as major improvements to ground transport and access to the airport precinct.
It will require no change to the airport curfew, aircraft movement cap or existing access arrangements for regional airlines and assumes the existing noise sharing arrangements will remain in place.
Sydney Airport is committed to engagement and consultation over its master plan and community and other key stakeholders will have an opportunity to comment once a preliminary draft plan is released. A draft master plan incorporating the feedback will be submitted to the Australian Government in early December 2013.
