Land

Our Place in the World is an area of unique natural beauty. We have a responsibility to maintain it, improve it and remediate contaminated land. By doing so, we help ensure the safety of our environment and our people, and enable growth without being limited by past activities. We also have a responsibility to ensure the safety of travellers and airline partners, so understanding the hazards and addressing the risks of bird strike is a critical
and ongoing activity.

Our three main focus areas towards land relate to:

  • Wildlife Hazard Management - minimising the interaction between wildlife and aircraft
  • Contaminated Land Management - responsibly managing historically contaminated areas (such as landfills and borrow pits) and where possible, developing them into usable commercial land
  • Looking after our ecologically significant sites - managing these areas to ensure they
    can continue to function as healthy ecosystems

Our Priorities

PROTECTING FUTURE USE FROM PAST ACTIVITIES

  • Contaminated land remediation and options
  • Standardise rules for developing contaminated land areas

MANAGING REMNANT SITES OF ECOLOGICAL SIGNIFICANCE

  • Survival and protection of Dry Plains Grassland
  • Identify site boundaries
