BNE Welcomes Input For Master Plan

Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) has today released its Preliminary Draft Master Plan for the future development of the airport for public comment, setting the scene for a $2.5 billion investment in airport infrastructure over the next two decades.

Julieanne Alroe, BAC CEO and Managing Director, said the 2014 Master Plan, once finalised, would ensure airport planning addresses industry demand and growth, while focusing on achieving a balance between economic development, sound environmental management and

sustainability.

“We have looked at the 2,700 hectares that encompasses Brisbane Airport to see where we can best plan for the future. Whether it’s a bike path, new road or terminal expansion, every aspect is addressed within the Master Plan.

“While the Master Plan is the blueprint for development to meet future demand, it also forms the platform for BAC’s ongoing contribution to the local, state and national economy over coming decades and we welcome input from our community about these plans,” Ms Alroe said.

Information covered in the 2014 Preliminary Draft Plan includes:

The public comment period runs for 60 business days from today. Once the community has had the opportunity to comment on the Master Plan it will be submitted to the Australian Government for approval.

The 2014 Preliminary Draft Master Plan and supporting documents are available to view online and copies available for viewing at BAC’s Head Office at Skygate and Brisbane City Council libraries. Hard copies of the Master Plan can be purchased for $100.

A number of public displays will be held during the public comment period. For more details visit www.bne.com.au or call the Master Plan team on 1800 737 075.
