Federal minister for Infrastructure and Transport, Anthony Albanese, has announced the appointment of Peter Fitzgerald as the new chair of the Sydney Airport Community Forum (SACF).
The appointment of Fitzgerald to SACF chair follows the resignation of Barry Cotter, who leaves the post after three years of service. Fitzgerald, a local resident and long-term member of SACF, has had an extensive involvement in politics and the aviation community, serving as CEO of Botany Bay City Council, a former Mayor of Drummoyne and chair of the Australian Mayoral Aviation Council (AMAC).
Albanese said SACF remained “important voice for the over 800,000 people who live around the Airport, giving them a direct channel to engage with Sydney Airport Corporation and AirServices on the Airport’s noise sharing plan”.
“It’s also an important source of advice for government on noise abatement and related environmental issues,” he said.
