Airport safety zones impact house prices

House prices near Australia’s airports could plummet as the federal government’s draft guidelines to establish public safety zones (PSZ) near runways are considered, local Adelaide councils have warned.

The draft National Airports Safeguarding Framework in May said “PSZ models generally aim to limit land uses which increase the number of people living, working or congregating within the zone”.

West Torrens Councillor Kym McKay on Wednesday told Messenger Community News the value of people’s properties could be made “effectively zero overnight as a result of what is a federal government imposition”.
