The Sydney Airport Demand Management Discussion Paper

The Sydney Airport Demand Management Discussion Paper (the discussion paper) PDF: 3689 KB was released as the first step of the Review in November 2020 to seek public comment and prompt discussion. The Discussion Paper outlined the scope of the review and raised a number of important focus questions that the Australian Government sought views on. The questions did not reflect Government policy—they were designed to elicit discussion.

Virtual consultations with stakeholders were held during November 2020 to capture stakeholder views on the questions and issues presented in the Discussion Paper.

Consultation on the Discussion Paper ensured the review considered current and emerging factors influencing Sydney Airport demand management.
