About 150 supporters of the airport at Warnervale brought a Central Coast Council meeting to a standstill when they stood in silent protest at a decision on Monday night, August 12.

The Mayor, Jane Smith, called an adjournment and the YouTube live-stream was turned off when people started to stand in silent protest as Councillors failed to rescind a decision made at a previous meeting.

The previous meeting had decided to remediate land near the runway that had been “reportedly” cleared in August or September, 2015.
