Manage the interfaces of industrial areas, trade gateways and intermodal facilities by:
Land use activities
a. providing buffer areas to nearby activities, such as residential uses, that are sensitive to emissions from 24-hour port and freight functions
b. retaining industrial lands for port, intermodal and logistics uses from the encroachment of commercial, residential and other non-compatible uses which would adversely affect industry viability to facilitate ongoing operation and long-term growth
c. requiring sensitive developments within influence of port and airport operations to implement measures that reduce amenity impacts
d. improving communication of current and future noise conditions around airports, surrounding road and rail networks, intermodal terminals and supporting private lands
e. improving the capacity of existing stakeholders to implement existing planning noise standards for incoming sensitive developments
f. protecting prescribed airspace from inappropriate development, for example height of building controls that would allow buildings to penetrate prescribed airspace and reduce the capacity of existing airport operations
g. identifying and preserving land for future port and airport, intermodal and rail infrastructure
h. ensuring adequate land is available for transit uses, for example, bus layovers.
i. providing the required commercial and passenger vehicle, and freight and passenger rail access
j. improving freight connectivity by both road and the proposed Western Sydney Freight Line from Villawood to Eastern Creek, via Yennora, Smithfield and Wetherill Park to improve business-to-business and supply chain connectivity along this industrial corridor
k. Recognising and giving effect to the National Airports Safeguarding Framework, incorporating noise, turbulence and wildlife safety measures.
