To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. The Humble Petition of the undersigned residents of the State of Western Australia respectfully showeth:

That the present site of the Perth Airport is unsuitable because of -

(a)   the morning fogs

(b)   its proximity to the Darling Ranges

(c)   its lack of planning, prior to construction

(d)   the loss to the local authority in rates and loss to the community in acreage of development area and assets

(e)   the restriction placed on the development of surrounding shires due to existing flight paths and proposed flight paths; and

(f)   the adjacent areas to the airport are suffering loss of value due to their unsuitability for high density development

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that action be taken to remove Perth Airport from its present site to the site planned by Professor Stephenson's overall plan for the City of Perth, that is at Lake Gnangarra. And your Petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray. by Mr Bennett.

Petition received.
