PIR Terms of Reference Community Meeting - 19 September 2020

On 19 September 2020, we held the first of our community meetings for the Sunshine Coast Flight Path Post Implementation Review (PIR).

The meeting was held at the Maroochy RSL, between 1pm and 5pm, and had participants from community groups, local councils, elected representatives, and Sunshine Coast Airport. The Aircraft Noise Ombudsman observed the meeting.

The purpose of the meeting was to discuss Airservices draft Terms of Reference for the PIR.

We thank everyone who participated, either in person, or on WebEx (despite some technical issues).

Presentations and information from the meeting, including a video recording, will be available here.
