Draft Noise Management Plan and Fly Neighbourly Advice

Council has been undertaking a multistep project to review operations at the Kempsey Airport and develop a Noise Management Plan (NMP) and Fly Neighbourly Advice (FNA).

In August 2017, Council resolved to appoint a Community Reference Group, now referred to as the Kempsey Airport Reference Group (KARG). Specialist consultants, The Airport Group (TAG), were engaged in July 2018 to conduct a noise study and use that data to prepare the draft NMP and FNA documents.

Following Council’s December 2018 resolution to make amendments and facilitate a further review meeting between TAG and KARG, the draft documents are now open for community comment and feedback.

The documents will be on public exhibition for 12 weeks and a community workshop/information session is being planned for late March 2019

Visit http://yoursay.macleay.nsw.gov.au/fna_nmp  to review the draft documents and have your say. Submissions close Friday 26 April 2019
