Major Development Plans
Major Development Plans (MDPs) are proposals for significant developments at Melbourne Airport which are submitted to the Federal Government for approval in accordance with the requirements of the Commonwealth Airports Act 1996.
More information on airport planning and regulation is available from the Department of Infrastructure and Transport . There is an opportunity for stakeholders and the community to comment on MDP proposals, which are advertised in the media and on the Melbourne Airport website. MDP proposals are also brought to the attention of the Melbourne Airport Community Aviation Consultation Group (CACG).
