Dear Mr Clare,

Constituent Concern - Helicopter Noise

Thank you for your recent letter advising of constituent concern with the levels of helicopter activity in the vicinity of Condell Park Airport on weekends.

We would suggest that any person who has a concern about aircraft noise register their concerns by contacting the Airservices Noise Complaint Unit on 1800 802 584. This action will ensure that the complaint is recorded formally and reported through various review groups including the Bankstown Airport Consultative Community Forum.

Bankstown Airport Limited will also canvas the idea of delaying the start time for helicopter training to say 0900 on Sundays; however please note that this initiative will require extensive consultation and agreement with all stakeholders including the operators and the regulators. Of course, emergency services will need to fly when an incident occurs.

We will keep you informed of our progress with this initiative.

Again thank you for your letter and I hope this information will assist you in dealing with this matter.
 
Yours sincerely,
 
Colin Grove
Chief Executive Officer
