Abstract

Privatisation of world airports is a global trend. The implications of ownership transfers have been assessed from various standpoints, especially operational and economic efficiency. This paper considers the urban planning implications through the lens of the Australian experience. While most jurisdictions maintain planning systems regardless of airport ownership, privatisation of approximately 20 airports owned and operated by the Australian government saw the institution of a new planning approvals regime. While this reform introduced more demanding environmental requirements, it sits outside state and local government regulations which control most land use planning in Australian cities. The paper canvasses the tensions which have arisen and pathways to their resolution.
