Sunshine Coast Airport Master Plan 2040
Sunshine Coast Airport Pty Ltd has prepared a new Airport Master Plan to guide the future development of the Sunshine Coast Airport to 2040 and beyond.
Airports by their nature require long-term planning horizons and Airport Master Plans are developed periodically by airports as part of good business practice to plan out the staged growth of an airport into the future. In the case of Sunshine Coast Airport, we are required to prepare an Airport Master Plan for the review and approval of Sunshine Coast Council under the terms of our 99-year airport lease agreement, between Sunshine Coast Council and Sunshine Coast Airport Pty Ltd.
The Airport Master Plan is a planning document that sets out how the airport will be developed over time to accommodate the future needs of the airport and the community as they grow over the next 20 years and beyond.
