Civilian Use of RAAF Base Richmond
Fellow members and friends of the Hawkesbury the North Richmond and Districts Community Action Association Inc. (NRDCAA) has arranged a Public Meeting ,Thursday 1st August 2013 at the Richmond Club, East Market Street, Richmond. The NRDCAA does not hold an opinion as such but feel that the community of the Hawkesbury should be informed so that they can form their own opinion, it is not just a matter of easy access to aerial travel but the matters of appropriate infrastructure (and lack of) ,pollution and noise, particularly for those who depend on tank water and/or are under the flight path.
So it was decided that:
"Following the release of the Joint Study on Aviation for the Sydney Region the Committee recommended the Australian Government initiate action to progressively open RAAF Base Richmond to a level of civil traffic....... with agreed conditions.
The authors of the report have agreed to present to a public meeting August 1, 2013 at the Richmond Club, 7.30pm, followed by a Q&A session.
The GM of Sydney Aviation Capacity Mr Brendan McRandle will be the keynote speaker".
