(2)   If so, were these proposals rejected by planning authorities.

(3)   Was the Department of Civil Aviation consulted by the planning authority on these proposals.

(4)   Was the Department of Civil Aviation in any way party to the rejection of these planning proposals because of the possible extensions of Perth Airport.

Mr Swartz - The Minister for Civil Aviation has provided the following answer to the honourable member's question:

(1)   1 am advised that tbe Belmont Shire Council did request consent to amend its town planning scheme to allow residential uses in part of Newburn during May 1962 and that the Council also sought consent to allow selected industrial uses in the area during the latter part of 1969.

(2)   Yes, the area was zoned rural. There was no need of the land because of adequate other availability of urban land. As industrial land it was difficult to service and to provide suitable access and, in any case, other industrial land was already available.

(3)   Yes, in relation to the 1969 talks which included discussions on the effect of airport noise and DCA's ultimate interest in the area.
