Plans for an Aeromedical Transfer Station at the Maryborough Aerodrome have moved a step closer, with the Central Goldfields Shire Council supporting the plans in-principle, with more detailed plans required before the shed can be given a stamp of approval.
At last month’s ordinary council meeting, Central Goldfields Shire Council interim administrator Mark Davies moved, seconded and carried a motion to support the project, in- principle, advising the Maryborough Ambulance Auxillary that council is currently finalising leasing arrangements at the aerodrome and that should the current site not comply with Civil Aviation Safety Authority requirements, alternatives will need to be determined.
The recommendation also stated that further discussion with Ambulance Victoria will be needed on design components.
In the report tabled to council it is stated the Maryborough Ambulance Auxillary has requested for a site at the Maryborough Aerodrome to construct a patient transfer shed, with the local auxillary to raise funds for the construction of the shed, including the associated works.
