The Bega Valley Shire Council is calling for expressions of interest from airport or aviation-related businesses to locate in the new Merimbula General Aviation District.
Project Services Manager Daniel Djikic said the recently completed first stage of the enclosure is now ready for a wide range of aviation-related businesses.
“The neighborhood offers a flexible design to adapt to a wide range of uses,” Mr. Djikic said.
“This can range from light aircraft owners wishing to rent a parking space for their aircraft to larger commercial operations requiring the construction of hangars.
“Given its location on one of Australia’s most beautiful coastlines, it would also be the perfect opportunity to expand the aviation services currently offered to our growing tourism industry.
“With approximately 60,000 passengers passing through Merimbula Airport each year; this is a golden opportunity to establish a business in a prime location with full access to airport aprons and taxiways.
“We are opening doors to facilitate discussion of the many uses the site can accommodate, starting with an expression of interest and moving later to a request for proposals.
“We have staff ready to discuss your ideas, so don’t hesitate to contact us if you need advice or have any questions.”

Expressions of interest must be submitted by December 14.
