STANLEY ENCOURAGES COMMUNITY TO HAVE THEIR SAY ON THE WESTERN SYDNEY AIRPORT

Anne Stanley MP, Member for Werriwa, has called on Western Sydney residents to make submissions into an inquiry on the Western Sydney Airport.

In light of high-profile scandals and community advocacy, the Australian Senate’s Finance and Public Administration References Committee has launched an inquiry into the Western Sydney Airport Project.

The inquiry will include land acquisition, environment management, community engagement, transport links and supporting infrastructure.

“It’s vitally important that as many local voices as possible are heard on this important issue affecting our community.” Ms Stanley said.

Ms Stanley spoke in Federal Parliament last October about the issues facing small landowners in the area, including a lack of clarity from the State Government.

“Many residents have raised their concerns with me about the planning and management of the airport and Aerotropolis.

“The small landowners want a fair go and their position has not changed from the beginning. They want certainty for their future.

“I will continue to fight on behalf of landowners and constituents for more transparency and confidence in the process.” Ms Stanley said.
