Mr McClelland asked the Minister for Transport and Regional Services, in writing, on 21 March 2007:

Further to his decision to reject the Sydney Airport Business Park Development, what advice did he receive from the independent expert consultant in respect of safety issues relating to the location of the proposed development and to what extent did those safety issues relate to the prospect of a plane crashing on take-off.

Mr Vaile (Minister for Transport and Regional Services) —The answer to the honourable member’s question is as follows:

The independent expert consultant advised that Sydney Airport Corporation Limited should be required to undertake a detailed hazard identification and risk assessment process to establish whether the proposed development would be likely to expose members of the public to an intolerable level of individual or societal risk. The event of an aircraft crashing on take-off was included in the range of risk scenarios considered.
