Motueka Aerodrome Management and Development Plans
The Council has prepared a management plan and a development plan for Motueka Aerodrome and is now inviting the community to comment on those plans.
The purposes of the plans are to coordinate the aerodromes use, operations, maintenance and developments safely, efficiently and in cooperation with the aerodrome operators. The management plan addresses issues such as permitted and discretionary uses of the aerodrome, management objectives, conditions for the operation of businesses, environmental as well as health and safety issues. The development plan sets out the parameters of acceptable growth for the aerodrome including the provision of proposed development areas including criteria for any future buildings etc.
These plans do not cover activities outside the envelope of the aerodrome. While an increase or decrease in future activity at the aerodrome may impact on the numbers and frequency of aircraft using the airspace in and around the aerodrome, the use of the airspace is not addressed in these plans as the Council in its role as owner and operator of the aerodrome does not control airspace. Submissions should focus on the information provided (or not provided) in the plans and while consequential matters may be considered by the Council when reviewing submissions, issues such as flight paths, flying areas or pilot behaviour, where the Council does not have control, are unlikely to be considered.
Copies are also available from Council offices and libraries at Motueka and Richmond.
An open day will be held on Tuesday 26 June 2012 between 2.00 pm and 4.30 pm at the Council’s Motueka offices at Hickmott Place to provide the opportunity for interested persons to share their views or ask questions regarding these plans.
Submissions to these plans will be received up until 4.00 pm Friday 13 July 2012, and should be addressed to:Submission on Motueka Aerodrome Management and Development Plans, Tasman District Council, Private Bag 4, Richmond 7050
Or may be emailed to email@example.com.
Submission forms may be downloaded below and mayalso be obtained from the Council offices or libraries at Richmond or Motueka.
There will not be a hearing to consider submissions. Once the Council has considered written submissions, the plans will be finalised and placed on the Council website. This process should be completed by the end of August 2012.
