Airport Rates Decision
Council at a Special Meeting on the 7th October 2019 considered legal advice on the recent decision on proceedings in the Federal Court by Northern Midlands Council – v – Commonwealth and Launceston Pacific Airports regarding payment and calculation of equivalent rates under clause 26 of the lease agreement.
To which Council formally resolved to appeal the decision of O’Callaghan J to dismiss the case, as Council is deeply concerned that such a decision will have significant impact on the Council into the future.
Council will not make further public comment whilst the matter is before the court.
