Regulatory approval for Stage 1 development
The Western Sydney Airport Plan PDF: 12899 KB outlines the approach to Western Sydney Airport's design and development.
The Hon Paul Fletcher MP, Minister for Urban Infrastructure, determined the Western Sydney Airport Plan which provides the authorisation for Stage 1 of the airport (a single runway facility capable of handling up to 10 million passengers per year).
The plan includes the concept design, indicative airport layout and zoning, air traffic forecasts and noise contours for the initial and longer-term airport development. More than 40 strict environmental conditions, which must be complied with, have been placed on the development of the airport. These are included in the Airport Plan.
