Gold Coast Airport 2017 Master Plan: Public Consultation

The preliminary draft 2017 Master Plan has been prepared to support the continued growth of the Gold Coast Airport as an economic and aviation gateway to the region. The document will ensure that the Gold Coast Airport can meet the changing demand for aviation and airport related services over the next five years and plan strategically for the next 20 years.

The preliminary draft 2017 Master Plan is a strategic document that is used as a guide for the development of airport facilities, assessment of environment effects, development of land use controls, and establishment of airport access requirements to meet the future requirements of the aviation industry and the community it serves.

A Master Plan is a statutory document under the Airports Act 1996 and is subject to approval by the Federal Minister for Infrastructure and Transport.
