Pilots to have say on aerodrome
PILOTS across the region are invited to attend a meeting to talk about Evans Head Aerodrome.
Users of the 100ha aviation facility will be able to put forward their expectations about the operating guidelines for the facility.
Site owner Richmond Valley Council has a consultant preparing the guidelines, the Fly Neighbourly Advice, for the site's use.
The guidelines will cover matters such as operating hours, flight paths and approach heights.
Council acting director of environment and development services Peter Cotterill said the guidelines sought to strike a balance between the expectations of aerodrome users and those of other stakeholders.
To deliver this, the consultation process includes a meeting where residents and other affected parties will be able to express expectations about use of the facility.
The guidelines will form part of the site's noise management plan which is a requirement of the management plan for the site.
The meeting for users will be held tonight between 6pm-8pm and the meeting for residents and other affected parties will be tomorrow, 6pm-8pm.
Both meetings will be at the council's Evans Head office at 25 Woodburn St.
