No plans for a local airport

Premier of Victoria Denis Napthine has quashed suggestions that Docklands could become home to a city airport.

In a report tabled in parliament in June, the outer suburban/interface services and development committee suggested Docklands would be a suitable location for a city airport.

On an overseas study trip the committee travelled through London airport. In its report the committee stated that it “… believed that a ‘Melbourne City’ Airport could be a useful long-term addition to augmenting aviation capacity in Melbourne”.

“Such an airport could be a useful addition as part of a comprehensive brownfield redevelopment near the centre of Melbourne such as Docklands,” the report stated.

Mr Napthine dismissed the suggestion at a press conference last month.

“Let me make it very clear, that recommendation is going nowhere,” Mr Napthine said.
