Residents given outline of proposed plan


POSITIVE SESSION: Council officers present Monday night's Whyalla Airport plan information session.

Tuesday, September 10, 2019

The City of Whyalla has thanked the sixteen residents that last night attended a community information session on the proposed Whyalla Airport upgrade plan.

Council officers presented information on the project that has been made necessary, in part, to meet the Australian Government measures to further strengthen Australia’s domestic and international aviation security with advanced screening technology.

Those residents present were given a rundown of the proposed project and invited to ask questions.

Director Corporate for Council, Robyn Dunstall said the session was positive with Council officers able to answer questions and have constructive discussion on the proposed plan.

“This session was an important part of the public consultation for this proposed project,” Robyn said.

“All the Federal Government legislative reasons for the project were presented, the financial benefits it will have for the city were outlined and the positive impact it will have for passengers was highlighted.

“The residents presented some good questions and we were able to respond to them one-on-one.

“All of these questions and comments do, however, have to be put in writing to be considered feedback as part of the public consultation process.”

The final decision will be made on the proposed investment after the consultation feedback is assessed along with the required prudential report.

Documentation for the proposed Whyalla Airport project is in the public consultation section of the Council website with hard copies available from the front counter of Council’s offices on Darling Terrace.

Feedback is invited until noon on Monday, September 16, 2019 and can be sent via email to or by mail to: PO Box 126, Whyalla SA 5600.

Enquiries can be made to Robyn Dunstall on 8640 3444.
