Forum On Western Sydney Airport hosting drop–in community information sessions

Media Release

PF054/2018

29 May 2018

The Forum On Western Sydney Airport (FOWSA) will tomorrow host the first of four community drop-in information sessions about the Western Sydney Airport project.

Minister for Urban Infrastructure and Cities Paul Fletcher said FOWSA is inviting the Western Sydney and Blue Mountains community to sessions at key local venues over the next four days.

“No registration is required so you can drop in at the time and location that suits you,” Mr Fletcher said.

“FOWSA plays a critical community consultation role in the planning and development of the new airport and is the main consultation mechanism for the project.

“As it is the key link between the community, the Federal Government and WSA Co, FOWSA has the important task of informing the community about the airport's planning and progress while taking community views on board.

“This is FOWSA's first series of drop-in events. These information sessions provide an opportunity for the community to speak with FOWSA and access information about Western Sydney Airport directly from project team members.

“The community will be able to ask questions about the project, such as the Federal Government's work towards implementing biodiversity offsets, work on surrounding roads, plans for the future Western Sydney rail link to the airport and how the airport will help galvanise initiatives under the Western Sydney City Deal.

“Holding this series of information sessions demonstrates the Australian Government's commitment to informing the community and seeking their views on all aspects of the airport's development, well before the first plane lands in 2026.”

The first four drop-in sessions will be held on:

  • Wednesday 30 May, 5pm to 8pm, at Warragamba Public School, Fourth Street, Warragamba
  • Thursday 31 May, 5pm to 8pm, at Chipping Norton Community Centre, Cnr Central Avenue and Homestead Avenue, Chipping Norton
  • Friday 1 June, 5pm to 8pm, at Glenbrook School of Arts Hall, Cnr Ross Street and Great Western Highway, Glenbrook
  • Saturday 2 June, 10am to 1pm, at Penrith Panthers Leagues Club, 123 Mulgoa Road, Penrith.
