Review of Warnervale Airport (Restrictions) Act 1996

The Department of Planning and Environment is now considering feedback on the review of the Warnervale Airport (Restrictions) Act 1996 to determine whether it is the most appropriate way to regulate activities at Warnervale Airport.

The Act came into force on 1 June 1997 as a response to proposals received at that time to expand the Warnervale Airport. The overall objective of the Act is to restrict the future development and operations of Warnervale Airport to protect the amenity of the surrounding area.

Warnervale airport is located in the Wyong local government area and is owned by Wyong Shire Council. Wyong Shire Council asked the Minister for Planning, as the Minister responsible for this Act, to consider repealing the Act as airports are strictly regulated under other legislation.

This review was limited to considering if the Act remains the appropriate tool to regulate the airport. The review did not consider the airport’s role or the uses at the airport. The review was separate and independent of the investigations into non-compliance issues at the airport currently underway by the Department of Planning and Environment.
