Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2005 Week 15 Hansard (Thursday, 15 December 2005) . . Page.. 4981 ..

Will BMAC be forced to move in the foreseeable future and what is the Government doing to ensure there is an appropriate open space for them to still undertake their flying activities.

Mr Corbell: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:




The CSG green waste disposal centre in Mitchell will have to be closed to facilitate the extension of Wells Station Drive and CSG has been given advance notice of this requirement. The ACT Planning and Land Authority and ACT NoWaste have been working together to identify a suitable new site for continuation of accepting green waste in Mitchell. CSG is aware of this.

The Planning and Land Authority has been involved in assisting BMAC with identifying a suitable new site for their flying activities since 2003.

An area within Mitchell Section 41 has been identified as the new site for BMAC relocation by end of 2005. The licence for the new site was granted on 30th November 2005.
