Maryborough Aerodrome

As Tuesday night’s (27/08) Ordinary Council meeting the Central Goldfields Shire Council considered a report on the future use, maintenance and site leases for the Maryborough Aerodrome.

The key decisions made by Council were to honour the terms of the former Maryborough Aero Club agreements and offer new leases on the compliant lease template and to convert the Maryborough Aerodrome to an Aircraft Landing Area (ALA).

The new classification will save Council an annual cost of $1.3 million.

As part of the decision, a kangaroo fence will be erected around the Aerodrome to protect users and wildlife in the area.

Council has engaged in discussions with all users, including the Maryborough Aero Club and Ambulance Victoria.

The re-classification will not affect how the Aerodrome is used.

Community members will still have access to air ambulances if needed and the Maryborough Aero Club will continue to have full access to the site.
