Airport Insurance Reviews

Through the airport leases and sale agreements, lessee companies have obligations to the Australian Government to maintain insurance. To establish more effective and appropriate insurance arrangements, the Department appointed an insurance consultant to advise on requirements for the sale agreements and levels of cover held by lessees.

Notes:

The renewal periods of insurance policies vary across airports. Therefore, the information above may not necessarily reflect financial year outcomes. For the purpose of this table, the period under review is July 2014 to June 2015.

The Department has postponed the final letters for some airports due to ongoing consideration of insurance arrangements.

Environment Authorisations

The Department may authorise an airport to undertake action which may result in environmental-emissions limits being exceeded where the emissions would be no more damaging to the environment than if the limits were met. No environmental authorisations took place during the reporting period.

Environment Protection Orders

The Department may make an environment protection order under Part 7, Division 1 of the Airports (Environment Protection) Regulations 1997 directing an airport to comply with a duty to avoid polluting, to preserve habitat, or to prevent offensive noise occurring. No environment protection orders were made during the reporting period.

Master Plans and Major Development Plans under Assessment

All leased federal airports must have a master plan approved by the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure and Regional Development, the Hon Warren Truss MP, for a 20-year strategic vision for the airport site including future land uses, types of permitted development and noise and environmental impacts. Major development plans are required for major developments at leased federal airports and are prepared by lessee companies. In 2014–15 the Department provided assessments on the master plans for Adelaide, Bankstown, Brisbane, Canberra, Jandakot, Launceston and Perth airports, which were subsequently approved. The Department also assessed seven major development plans including Adelaide's hotel, Jandakot's K Mart Distribution Centre, Sydney T2/T3, Moorabbin's Costco, Essendon's hotel developments, Gold Coast's Southern Cross University development and Brisbane's Domestic Terminal Northern Regional Satellite.
