Project MDP's Information

Certain types of development are defined in section 89 of the Airports Act 1996 as being ‘major airport development’. Before undertaking such development, airports must prepare and publicly exhibit for comment a draft Major Development Plan (MDP). The Minister for Infrastructure and Transport is the consent authority for MDPs.


Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) identifies when a MDP is required, assists in the preparation of the MDP and manages the process with the client and Commonwealth, State and Local Government.


This page displays the draft MDPs for public comment and MDPs approved by the Australian Government.
