Planning & Environment

Our vision for Essendon Airport is to establish a commercially viable, safe and functional general aviation facility which meets the projected aviation requirements whilst utilising the property’s strategic land holdings for high quality commercial development.

As Essendon Airport is located on Commonwealth Land, the airport’s plans and future developments are overseen by the Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development (Commonwealth). The overarching planning framework for the airport is the Master Plan which is prepared very five years and approved by the Federal Minister for Infrastructure and Regional Development.

Relevant aspects of Essendon Airport’s planning framework are included within these pages.
