Discussion Notes:

Minutes for the previous meeting were provided to committee members to review prior to the commencement of the meeting. Cr. Denton tabled the minutes as true and correct with no amendments required.

Moved: Barry McCabe

Seconded:       Lyn Kajewski

 

Item 3              Adoption of Terms of Reference

Cr. Denton requested feedback on the draft Terms of Reference that was provided to all committee members.

Peter Flynn noted that references to the ‘Advisory Group’ had been replaced with ‘Advisory Committee’; however there were a few instances in the draft document were this had been missed. To keep the document consistent, Peter suggested that the document be reviewed to ensure all references to the ‘Advisory Group’ be changed to ‘Advisory Committee’.

Moved:             Barry McCabe

Seconded:       Meryl Brumpton

 

Item 4              Guest Speakers – Peter Vincent

Peter Vincent CEO of Vincent Aviation spoke to the committee about the BAE146 aircraft that is currently flying into Roma once a week. Peter outlined the changes made to the aircrafts weight and tyre pressure to meet the requirements of the Roma Airport to ensure the safety of the facility. Peter offered for the committee members to inspect the aircraft after the meeting was closed.

 

Question: Adrian Harding asked ‘Is there a comparative figure to demonstrate the impact the BAE146 has compared to the Q400?’

Response: The Roma Airport is designed for the Q400, a relative comparison between Q400 and the BAE146 results in the BAE146 causing 80% of a Q400 loading on the runway and apron. This information can be provided to all committee members at the next meeting.

 

Question: Cr. Denton asked ‘Is the BAE146 landing in Roma with a lower tyre pressure than the aircraft normally operates with?’

Response: Yes, to comply with the landing requirements of the Roma Airport the tyre pressure are currently lower than normal operations.

 

Question: Cr. O’Neill asked ‘Is there any predications for the next 12-18 months for flights coming into Roma?’

Response: Would like to increase to 4-5 flights a week within 12 months. Vincent Aviation is not looking to compete with QantasLink, the focus is delivering services the private clients.

 

Question: Cr. O’Neill asked ‘Does Vincent Aviation have to schedule flights into Roma?’

Response: Vincent Aviation works closely with Peter Flynn to work in with the schedules for Roma and Brisbane.

 

Question: Cr. Denton asked ‘How does a change in schedule impact your flights?’

Response: Any change impacts us the same as all other flight carriers. It can mean missed time slots back into Brisbane and having to wait here in Roma until a new slot is assigned, delaying passengers expected flight times.

 

Questions were posed by committee members to Peter Vincent asking if the BAE146 can land in Toowoomba Airport as it currently is, and if they intended to operate from the Wagner’s Airport that is being developed in Toowoomba. If Vincent Aviation would look at operating a Toowoomba to Roma flight and if the route was deregulated, the possibility of operating RPT flights. 

 

Peter Vincent advised that the BAE146 cannot land in Toowoomba currently; we would have to get a concession to land. However they have been approached to operate from the Wagner’s Airport once operational. In relation to Toowoomba to Roma flights, they would only look at this if that is what the client requested. Vincent Aviation is not looking to venture into RPT.

 

Peter Flynn commented that in relation to the discussion and comparison of the Q400 to the BAE146, he did not want to see the Q400 being cast in a negative light. There are a lot of similar aspects to the Q400 landing and the BAE146 landing, i.e. reduced fuel by the time the aircraft lands in Roma. 

 

Question: Cr. O’Neill commented that the Council have experienced unauthorised operations and landings at Injune Airport and this has resulted in significant damage at the Airport. Council does not want to see a repeat at of this at Roma. Also what precautions are taken with the high temperatures that Roma experiences, as this may not have been taken into account?

Response: Vincent Aviation will take the necessary precautions to ensure that as little impact as possible occurs from their aircraft. If it was found that the BAE146 was causing damage Vincent Aviation would avoid landing in Roma to prevent this. The Pavement Concession Number is based on the condition and environment of the pavement at Roma Airport, the impact of higher temperatures would have been accounted for in this calculation. However we would find the best solution to avoid any potential impact from higher temperatures, such as landing later, if this can coincide with the requirements of the client.

 

Question: Greg Shaw asked ‘Would Vincent Aviation be prepared to contribute to the cost of installing PAPI lights at Roma Airport’

Response: If it became a viable option that Vincent Aviation was arriving/departing more frequently or were requested to land during dark hours, we would be prepared to make arrangements to contribute to the installation of PAPI lights.

 

Question: Barry McCabe asked ‘What is the operational cost of the BAE146 compared to the Q400?’

Response: The BAE146 has a higher operational cost because of the higher fuel consumption; however the capital cost is much lower.

 

Item 5              Airports Legislative Framework – Questions

No questions were presented by committee members

 

Item 6              Roma Aero Club Parking

Greg Shaw bought to the committee that the parking around the Aero Club and other airport businesses has been reduced because council have sectioned off parking and marked with ‘No Parking’ signs on Hangar Drive. Greg believes that council should not been able to do this as it is a gazetted road, businesses at the airport and private users should not have to pay for parking and the issue needs to be addressed. Greg proposed sectioning off this area from the rest of the airport with a security fence. 

Cr. O’Neill stated that the issue had not been raised with council and asked how many car park spaces would need to be reinstated to address this issue?

Ben Jones advised that the sectioning off of the car parks located across from the Aero Club was in response to notification that vehicles had been parking in this location and it was becoming dangerous. The parked vehicles were on a corner, passengers were leaving their bags on the road and passengers were not looking for traffic travelling through this area.

Cr. O’Neill proposed that Airport Management consult with Airport businesses and private users to establish how many car park spaces were felt to be needed to rectify this issue.

 

Item 7              Terminal Redesign

Ben Jones presented the committee with the final design of the Airport Terminal for the next stage in development. The item of note was the inclusion of an area for retail outlets, located opposite the kiosk location.

The committee agreed that expressions of interest should be sought from the community to help in estimating the number of outlets that would be required.

Cr. Schefe also added that the inclusion of a platform for local tourism would also be beneficial. This could be through displayed brochures and a running advertisement on digital displays located around the terminal.

 

Item 8              Charter Flight Scheduling

Peter Flynn noted the congestion that was occurring at the airport. There are a significant number of flights coming through the airport and at times several flights can land at the airport at one time. The congestion that occurs both on the apron and in the terminal is becoming an operational issue.

Ben Jones advised that he has contacted Air Services Australia to conduct a study of the air space at Roma Airport to advise Airport Management on appropriate actions to better control the scheduling at Roma. Airport Management is also proposing amendments to be made in ERSA to insure aircraft operators advise Airport Management of unscheduled landings so congestion can be managed better.

 

Item 9              MI Helicopters: Parking matters

This agenda item was already addressed in the discussion of Item 6 – Aero Club Parking

 

Item 10            General Business

Barry McCabe raised concern about the current procedure for obtaining the gate code for access airside. The code is no longer displayed on the inside of the gate.

Ben Jones advised that during a recent OTS audit, is was advised that the display of the gate code was not a secure way of allowing access airside and as such it was suggested that it be removed and a new process put in place. As per the current wording of the TSP the gate code is required to be changed every 3 months to ensure security. To gain access airside, an individual must present to the administration office at the Airport and show their ASIC before the gate code can be given.

The committee discussed alternate options for access, as the council does not have someone at the airport 24 hours a day. The committee agreed that the process of having the code on the inside of the gate, but shielded with a cover was the best option.

Cr. O’Neill moved that Airport Management develop a new process for airside access, using the preferred suggestion of the gate code displayed on the inside of the gate with a cover shielding it from general view.

Seconded:       Greg Shaw


 

Cr. Denton asked if the rental companies located at the airport hired vehicles to the general public, as she has been informed that there was an instance were someone was refused hire of a vehicle as vehicles were only hired to resource companies and not the general public.

Adrian Harding of Europcar advised that whilst he could not speak on behalf of the other rental companies, he hired to anyone who wished to hire a vehicle. Although sometimes a specific vehicle that is requested cannot be hired because of prior bookings.

 

Keith Chandler asked the possibility of free parking for out of town Maranoa Regional Council residents. He stated that his wife had written several letters to council asking this question but had not yet received a response.

Cr. O’Neill advised that the letters had not been brought before council, but that this issue had been discussed at length.

Cr. Denton advised that the outcome was not feasible as the free parking for some resident was not fair to all residents of the Maranoa Regional Council. It would mean the cost of the asset would be subsided and increase rates for all residents and there are some residents who do not utilise the airport facilities.

The committee discussed the idea of an annual pass for those wishing to access parking at a reduced cost, however no outcome was reached.

No RTO membership isolates us from Government inputs.

SQCT is ambivalent about which RTO we are a member of.

 

OQTA is happy to receive our membership although it has 17 members currently and finds it difficult to keep them satisfied that they are  represented effectively

Target markets

Events = SEQ

Long Haul = Sthn States

Domestic = SEQ

International

Niche Mktg

Events = all of Q ld

Long Haul = Sthn States

Domestic = All of Qld

International

Niche Mktg

Benefit of both strategies for est $62 - $100K PA

Events = within day travel

Long Haul = Selected trade shows in Sthn States,

Niche,

glam packer

eco tourist

Domestic = Selected trade shows.

 

Both RTO’s have strategies to reach these target markets, however Maranoa tourisms profile is lost to a large extent. 

To ensure that we stand out, Maranoa tourism must dominate these strategies irrespective of electing to JV or must replace if we go alone.

Dear Mr Purcell

Re: Request Road Extension – Lanreef Road

 

I am writing in response to your telephone call via our Customer Service in which you requested that Council extend Lanreef Road beyond the property boundary of Lot 31 on Plan WV391 to provide access to the land parcel of Lot 25 on Plan WV390.

 

I have reviewed your request and have referred your issue to Council’s Manager – Infrastructure Planning & Design, Kym Downey. Kym has advised that this project will be investigated and a report to Council for budget consideration will be submitted at the general meeting due to be held on 28 August 2013. 

 

If you have any further queries in the interim, please do not hesitate to contact Kylie Fleischfresser, Coordinator - Infrastructure Planning on 4624 0762 (Direct) or 1300 007 662 (via Customer Service).

 

Yours faithfully

Dear Phil,

 

Re: Councillor Customer Feedback Form Dated 16th July 2013

Re: Lewis Street South

 

Thank you for your Customer Feedback Form addressed to Councillor Cameron O’Neil  dated 16th July 2013, regarding Lewis Street South not being bitumened.

 

Upon Councillor Chambers request, I have allocated this matter to our Roads and Drainage North Manager Julian McEwan to follow up.

 

Our budget has just been adopted for this financial year and unfortunately the bitumening of Lewis Street South has not been scheduled. We  would like to advise that we have noted this request with our Planning Department for future budget considerations and it is flagged to be reviewed in the next round of budget deliberations.

 

Again, thank you for bringing this matter to the attention of Councillor O’Neil. 

 

Please do not hesitate to contact Sheree Hurle of my office on (07) 4624 0748, or by email – sheree.hurle@maranoa.qld.gov.au, if you have any further questions or concerns with progression of this matter.

 

 

Yours faithfully,

 

 

 

Michael Parker

(Acting) Director – Infrastructure Services
