WCC LTP ‘consultation’


Here was the online ‘consultation’ of the WCC for the runway extension as proposed in the LTP. This did not find its way into being considered an official submission, not that that was made clear to the submitters. It is very interesting to read the comments, pro and con as it becomes clear that the people who went online to vote for it, mainly give short statements like “Just get it done’ whereas the people who voted against it give long and considered reasons why they oppose it. It also needs to be noted that the question the Council asked in the LTP was highly disingenuous – ‘Do you support better air connectivity?’ is very different to ‘Do you support a $300m runway extension without a business case, plan or committed airline?’.
