The Board of the Western Sydney Regional Organisation of Council’s has called for a major community consultation campaign to determine the views of Western Sydney residents towards building a second airport at Badgery’s Creek.
Speaking after the Board meeting on Thursday February 21, President Tony Hadchiti said Western Sydney needed to have an important voice in the decision making process, as their residents would be the most affected.
“There is no doubt that the issue needs to be widely canvassed among the people who will be most affected by any decision regarding a second airport for Western Sydney,” Clr Hadchiti said.
“A major infrastructure project of this size would directly create up to 40,000 jobs, and bring benefits to many more local businesses and industries.
“Our region has a unique set of opportunities and challenges and it will be interesting see how residents will view the impact of an airport.
