Case for airport should be closed


The Central Coast Airport continues to be debated into its third decade, and although I generally favour aircraft and airports, I do not favour ratepayers having to foot the bill for such a project at Sparks Rd.
In Mr Codrington’s statements, there is still no indication of what 20-40 seater aircraft can work off and be financially sustainable.
Of course there are short take off and land (STOL) aircraft, but their commercial usefulness is ending.
Mr Codrington rules out 100 seat plus being types and this is elementary.
The car I drive was imported in knocked down form and assembled here, a long time ago.
This process can still apply to aircraft imported from the USA.
This could happen at Albion Park, Scone, Temora or Tamworth; or it could happen in any factory bay here in Wyong or Gosford.
If the Central Coast Airport is such a great investment, then why isn’t private enterprise offering to buy out city hall?
If such enterprise was to be listed on the stock exchange, any prospectus could not pass SE requirements.
Case closed please Mr Codrington.
The Business Chamber worries me and it should know better.
