Eviction notices served on tenants at Moorabbin ?
 
Rumours abound that the owners of Moorabbin airport have apparently served eviction notices on a number of maintenance organisations, that are apparently in the way of proposed re-developement for factories/shops/other non aviation related activities.
The western end of the airport seems to be the target area. .

Third St will be extended to Northern Ave so no aeroplanes can get west of that.

So I guess Blue Demon, Simpsons etc are looking for new locations ?

How dumb........

It's only a matter of time before MB is just a collection of old photos on some cobweb ridden aviation museums!

I think you will find the “sensible” organisations, MH and RS for example, have made a workable accomodation. Others?

You can never have enough retail outlets in times like this.


YMMB and YMEN are the two airports that have not any traffic decline during the Chineses Virus crisis.

Holy crap, Third to Northern, just a quick look at google earth shows 60-70 Aircraft parked in that area with a fair few spots remaining. Granted I think on that grass area I remember some of them being abandoned derelicts but that's a ridiculous amount of parking being lost. Have they made it up somewhere else?

A tennant near Blue Demon tells me that the change is to give better access / carparking for DFO. I understand that Blue Demon & Simpson have been offered alternatives that are inferior to their curent locations, but neither have accepted yet.

Access to DFO is indeed diabolical at busy times, but it's hard to see how Third Avenue would improve matters since it still leads out to Grange Road. It's not asthough anyone is going to re-open Voltri Street after almost 40 years closed!
On the other hand, the space enclosed between Grange and Third, south of Northern Avenue and north of Second Avenue would certainly improve their parking, if not provide room to expand the shopping centre itself.

Look at the amount of area on google earth. People won’t be interested in walking that far to goto DFO, IMO. I reckon it will be a step process that will ultimately see more non aviation tenants and factories in place.

Factories wouldn't make sense when that space is so suited to extending the DFO retail operation.

Nonsense: I broaden my scope to include what you suggest. Either way, it will be a loss for us.

DFO in Mentone is so cheaply constructed. It's just one big concrete slab shelled by cheap walls and roofing. The car park asphalt is also the cheap stuff.
This thing brings consumers which attracts more businesses which brings more consumers which attracts more businesses etc, etc. The car park is always full, though not as chronic as Chadstone Shopping Centre which has much more parking.

Like Chadstone SC and DFO in Docklands, DFO Mentone should start expanding by building underground, but the easier, cheaper and greedier option is to simply aquire the land next door. I'm sure DFO Mentone is a cashcow and they have the money to expand it underground, but they appear to have met very little resistance with their current plans.

Airports are about as popular as prisons. That is why they are being carved up.

Petropavlovsk 29th Jun 2020 22:50

If the proposed plan does succeed and I have not heard of any legal challenge as yet; perhaps excess traffic would be able to use the satellite airfields close by?

Berwick closed
Packenham closed
South Dandenong closed
Mooraduc closed
Longwarry closed
Tyabb too many issues with locals

Moorabbin appears to be heading in a direction not entirely agreeable to Aviation.

On the other hand, Government is handing out big grants to other small regional airports such as Leongatha for example. (Which is great news by the way)

CitationJet 30th Jun 2020 00:54

What/where/when was the South Dandenong strip?

thorn bird 30th Jun 2020 03:54

Airport privatisation.

The biggest fraud ever perpetrated on the Australian people.

None of these development sharks bought the airport leases ever intended to run an airport.

Almost all of them have subverted the Airport Act, their leases and in some cases safety and the environment.

They are putting up what appears to be a large structure at Bankstown approximately 1000 ft off the end of the
thresholds of the three main runways. Perfect targets for one of the most common aircraft mishaps.
Wonder who will carry cost of lawsuits if a BA146 or global express spears off the end of RW29?

Don't be fooled into thinking these people "own" the airport.
The Commonwealth (all of us) own the airport. They are TENANTS with no freehold however much they pretend they "own" it.
Their head lease will state that if someone is evicted for a development they have to find somewhere else for them that is equivalent, however that is probably as likely as JAH actually having offsets for all the wildlife they bulldozed, (Of course Mr Garrett was never able to answer that one) The all know that the relevant Minister, whatever party is in power, will turn a blind eye, just as Albanese did while Jandakot was being turned from a valuable conservation area into a traffic jam surrounded by a concrete jungle. Bear that in mind, just in case anyone was thinking of writing to a Labor MP to try and stop this, it was Keating's idea in the first place.
The airports should be renationalised.
