Community submissions for the proposed Western Sydney Airport

The Australian Government is committed to the Western Sydney region, where a new airport would be a major generator of economic activity—providing employment opportunities closer to home for Western Sydney's growing population.

On 19 October 2015 the Australian Government released the draft Airport Plan and the draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for community consultation. This community consultation period concluded on 18 December 2015.

Comments received during the exhibition period on the draft EIS will be taken into account in the process of finalising the EIS. Comments received on the draft Airport Plan may also be taken into account in the process of finalising that document.
