Motion: ACTION bus service to the airport

NCCC believes that the ACT government has a responsibility to provide effective public transport services to connect to transport services to outside the ACT ie to interstate buses, trains and the airport.  THE ACT government does not provide a service to the Canberra airport.  NCCC notes that it would be possible to add the airport to the existing network services.  NCCC calls on the ACT government to introduce add the airport to the next revision of the bus network and to immediately ensure that the current privately operated bus uses the public  bus station in Civic rather than west row to increase the usability of the current service.

Canberra Airport Major Development Plan

Should the NCCC make a submission on Canberra Airport’s Preliminary Draft Major Development Plan for an Office Development, referring to issues such as induced traffic; transfer of jobs from Civic and town centres, (3) operates outside and contrary to ACT planning policies?
