Cessnock City Council currently has an invitation to apply for funding under the Growing Local Economies Fund from the NSW Government. The successful expression of interest has led to a proposal for a full business case to be prepared for an upgrade of Cessnock Airport totalling $7.622 M.

With the support of the NSW Government, Cessnock City Council have engaged REMPLAN to assist us in developing a robust business case which demonstrates outstanding return on investment.

 

This project is a significant infrastructure upgrade of Cessnock Airport to realise:

 

  • the widening and resealing of taxiways;
  • provision of aprons and aircraft parking areas;
  • improved fuel area access;
  • runway extension and resealing;
  • connection of water and sewer to the site;
  • fencing; and
  • construction of aircraft storage facilities.

 

The project comprises the widening and resealing of taxiways; provision of aprons and aircraft parking areas; improved fuel area access; runway extension and resealing; connection of water and sewerage to the site; fencing; future Hangarage; and construction of aircraft storage facilities.

 

To secure the funding to complete the project and attract the considerable investment…. WE NEED YOUR HELP!

In order to secure the funding, we need to capture the range of economic benefits that can be stimulated by the project.

On this page is a survey we ask existing operators and  businesses at the Cessnock Airport and businesses with the potential to relocate to Cessnock Airport to complete by Monday 14 January 2019.
