To the Honourable Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives:

STOP INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT AT CAMDEN AIRPORT

This petition of certain Citizens of Australia draws to the attention of the House a matter under the Airports Act 1996 where Camden Airport Limited, via their Draft Master Plan 2010 for Camden Airport NSW, seeks to allow development of airport land for non-aviation related uses such as bulking goods retailing, industrial and business premises, road transport terminals etc. This would conflict with Camden Aerodrome’s historical significance and its rural setting in environmentally sensitive land which is home to endangered species of flora.

We therefore ask the House to impose limitations on use at Camden Aerodrome to exclude activities and development that are not related to aviation and aviation support. We further ask that the historical and rural nature of this airfield be protected from any inappropriate development.

Mrs Irwinby (from 1,051 citizens)
