Western Sydney Airport: Important Community Information
The Blue Mountains community is strongly encouraged to have a look at the draft Airport Plan and the EIS and to have your say - visit the Australian Government website www.westernsydneyairport.gov.au.
Submissions must be lodged by Friday 18 December 2015.
The Australian Government has released the draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the proposed Western Sydney Airport, together with a Draft Airport Plan.
The Council opposes flight path activity being concentrated over the Blue Mountains and the impact on our local community and quality of life by: Excessive, intrusive noise for residents 24/7; Air pollution and emissions affecting public health; Loss of tourism economy; Threat to World Heritage listed Greater Blue Mountains National Park ;Danger to Sydney’s Drinking Water Catchment.
The Council also believes that 60 days to respond to the EIS isn’t long enough to consider a very lengthy and technically complex document.
