Private airstrip bid gets off the ground

By SALLY GORDON

CLARENCE Valley Council will allow a private airstrip on land at Lawrence.

Outgoing administrator Neil Payne approved the development application, from a Victorian, which details a 750metre by 30m landing strip for lot 8, Tullymorgan Road.

The landowner, who lives and works at Wodonga, said the runway would be used by a light aircraft, up to four times a year for the first three years. After a house was built, it would be used once a month.

Council received two objections to the proposal, one of which questioned how the strip would affect the amenity of the surrounding area.

Council believed the noise generated by the aircraft would be similar to a cane harvester. Concerns about air pollutants also were addressed using current pollu- tion laws.
