    1.0 Introduction

    The following Planning Report has been prepared by Gilvear Planning Pty Ltd

    (Gilvear Planning) on behalf of Mission Helicopters Pty Ltd (the applicant) in

    support of a Development Application submitted to the Cassowary Coast

    Regional Council seeking approval for a Development Permit for a Material

    Change of Use, to enable the applicant to establish an Aviation Facility (Air

    Services) on land at 2224 Tully-Mission Beach Road, Mission Beach, formally

    described as Lot 3 on RP732964 (the subject site).

    Specifically, the applicant proposes to develop an Aviation Facility at the subject site for the purpose of

    providing passenger transport inclusive of island connections from the region’s major airports (Cairns and

    Townsville) to support the local tourism sector. Associated uses including medical transfers, aerial

    firefighting and search and rescue operations will also be undertaken on an as required basis.

    The proposed development will comprise a single-story building, parking spaces, an external helicopter

    landing pad, a fuel storage area and walkways. The proposed development will be located on a portion of

    the subject site which is highly disturbed as a result of previous agricultural activities. The building

    frontage and parking areas will be landscaped with a variety of native flora species with the remainder of

    the subject site grassed.

    Future helicopter operations (take-off and landings) will use a direct eastern flight path from the proposed

    development to minimise disturbance of native fauna species within the local area. Once airborne,

    helicopters will head east over the Coral Sea prior to heading towards intended destinations. Flights over

    the Djiru, Maria Creek and Japoon National Parks will not occur as a result of activities associated with

    the proposed development.

    The proposed development will be connected to mains water infrastructure on the Tully-Mission Beach

    Road. A conventional septic system with soakage trench will be installed to service the proposed

    development. An existing electricity connection servicing a disused pump-shed on the subject site will be

    re-routed to provide the proposed development with mains electricity via Ergon Energy infrastructure. A

    telecommunications connection will be provided to the proposed development via existing infrastructure

    from the Tully-Mission Beach Road.

    To facilitate the proposed development, an existing access point from the Tully-Mission Beach Road will

    be upgraded as per RPEQ design plans. Traffic calculations confirm that the proposed development will

    have minor impacts on the Tully-Mission Beach Road and will not adversely impact existing users.

    The subject site is a rectangular shaped parcel of land located at 2224 Tully-
