Mornington Peninsula Shire , again attempting to put a stop to facilities & flying at Peninsula Aero Club! The shire want to amend the 'planning scheme' to create unworkable/invalid operating restrictions on Peninsula Aero Club. If such restrictions are put into action this will cause great issues for aviation activity, the flying school & other PAC operations such as maintenance and businesses that operate out of the airfield. 

PAC has been operating for almost 60 years, is one of our much loved main attractions , hosts amazing events for the locals (ppl come from all over Australia to attend) & importantly is a place of employment for so many! Peninsula Aero Club is under a direct & blunt attack by the Mornington Peninsula Shire.

" The Airport is famous for its collection of antique, vintage and ex-military aircraft, which include  some of the world’s last flying examples. They can be seen at Tyabb.

The Shire finally backed off its first attack after people power came to our aid following Shire’s refusing PAC’s request to allow it to conduct the famous Tyabb Airshow this year. 
We now need the local and aviation community to stand up for us again.
 
We ask all Victorians to sign our Parliamentary Petition asking the Minister for Planning to refuse authorisation for this aggressive push by the Shire to unilaterally impose debilitating conditions that will see the closure of the airport, destroying jobs and emergency services’ capabilities, especially fire-fighting, air ambulance and Police Air Wing." - Quoted by Jack Vevers PAC President 26.02.20

PREVIOUSLY - (the original petition details below)

"The Shire has raised concerns that it is unable to locate permits which allow the Club to continue to operate as it has been doing for more than 50 years."

These missing permits are believed to include those that allow:

  • the use of the land as an Airport or Airfield
  • the operation of the flying school
  • a transport terminal
  • a place of assembly
  • a major sport and recreational facility
  • a major events facility (the biennial air show)

Following quoted by PAC President Jack Vevers "If these stop-work notices were to be enforced it would mean a massive loss of jobs and damage to local families and surrounding businesses," Vevers said. "This is a direct response to the continuous attacks from the anti-airport faction and the shire appears to be attempting to thwart the potential for these businesses to access their existing use rights."The shire’s approach has been bombastic to say the least, and in some instances over the past few weeks, may have been unlawful with regards to our permit applications."It is our contention that PAC has permits and rights to support all of these functions and we will be defending our rights of existence after more than 55 years."
