Benalla Airport is a key asset of the Benalla Rural City Council that provides vital economic and social services to the area. The Council in conjunction with the Gliding Club of Victoria and Gliding Federation of Australia has won the world gliding championship for 2017; which includes the pre world championship in 2016.
Council wishes to be in position to manage and develop its airport infrastructure in a manner that is commensurate with the expected growth in aviation activity over the next 20 years. Council also recognises that some of that activity will be associated with major aviation events such as world or national titles.
Benalla Airport Masterplan
The Benalla Airport Masterplan(PDF, 5MB) process was funded by the Victorian Government through the Regional Development Victoria Putting Locals First Program.
Purpose of the Benalla Airport Masterplan
Airport master planning is undertaken to enable best-management practices and sound land use development in addressing the diverse aviation and community interests. An airport master plan is the primary strategic tool available to airport owners/operators and communicates the operator’s intentions with respect to development of the airport.
