Background

In 2010 NASAG was formed and tasked with preparing a National Airports Safeguarding Framework. The NASF was agreed by Governments in 2012. It is a national land use planning framework that aims to improve community amenity and airport safety outcomes by ensuring aviation related issues are recognised as part of land use planning processes.

The NASF has implications for those people working in town planning, residential or commercial development, building construction or related industries, and the aviation industry.  It consists of a set of overarching principles with nine guidelines.

If you would like information about how NASF is being implemented in your state/territory, please see list of contacts here

If you would like further information about NASF or the Implementation Review, please contact Ms Sharyn Owen, Director, Airport Safeguarding on (02) 6274 6125 or at safeguarding@infrastructure.gov.au.
