Camden Airport Master Plan approved

Media Release


23 December 2015

Today Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure and Regional Development Warren Truss announced the approval of Camden Airport's 2015 Master Plan.

Camden Airport submitted the Plan to the Deputy Prime Minister for consideration in October 2015. The newly approved plan replaces the 2010 Master Plan.

“The Master Plan sets out Camden Airport's strategic direction for the next 20 years and provides the community with information about the operation and development of the site,” Mr Truss said.

“Camden Airport is an important part of the General Aviation network in NSW, particularly supporting recreational and training flights. 

“Over the next 20 years aircraft movements are predicted to increase from around 94,000 movements in 2014 to around 112,000 in 2034.

“The Plan seeks to support the long term sustainability of the aviation industry within the Sydney Basin. This is consistent with the Australian government's strategic planning for aviation in the Sydney Region, including the recent announcement of Badgerys Creek as the location for an airport in Western Sydney.

“The 2015 Master Plan ensures that aviation remains the core business at Camden Airport proposing a new taxiway naming protocol and the placement of Movement Area Guidance Signs on the airfield.

“The 2015 Master Plan does not propose any Major Airport Developments within the planning period but includes a proposal to relocate the Australian Aviation Museum from Bankstown Airport to Camden Airport within the next five years.”

Camden Airport must now publish their final Master Plan within 50 business days.
