Draft Noise Management Plan and Fly Neighbourly Advice

Council has been undertaking a multistep project to review operations at the Kempsey Airport and develop a Noise Management Plan (NMP) and Fly Neighbourly Advice (FNA).

In August 2017, Council resolved to appoint a Community Reference Group, now referred to as the Kempsey Airport Reference Group (KARG). Specialist consultants, The Airport Group (TAG), were engaged in July 2018 to conduct a noise study and use that data to prepare the draft NMP and FNA documents.

Following Council’s December 2018 resolution to make amendments and facilitate a further review meeting between TAG and KARG, the draft documents are now open for community comment and feedback.

The documents will be on public exhibition for 12 weeks and a community workshop/information session is being planned for late March 2019.

Visit http://yoursay.macleay.nsw.gov.au/fna_nmp  to review the draft documents and have your say. Submissions close Friday 26 April 2019.

Water meter reading

The next round of water meter reading for properties across the Shire will commence on Monday 18 February 2019.

These 3 monthly water usage accounts will be issued in March and be due for payment by the end of April 2019.

Dog owners are asked to ensure that contract meter readers can access properties without interference. Overgrown or buried water meters can also cause problems and may result in incorrect readings being registered. Please make sure your water meter is accessible at all times.
