• Perth Airports Municipalities Group Inc.

About Us

Back in 1981/82, a group of nine local governments formed a coalition as a result of community issues surrounding the redevelopment of Perth Airport. With the success of that coalition, the nine local governments determined in January 1983 to formally establish as the Perth Airports Municipalities Group. The Perth Airports Municipalities Group Inc (PAMG) is a not-for-profit association now comprising of thirteen local governments members.

The Group meets on a quarterly basis with stakeholders such as the operators of Perth Airport,  Jandakot Airport, representatives from Airservices Australia and the Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development & Cities to discuss matters which either directly or indirectly impact on the community such as aircraft noise, flight paths, off-airport development, on-airport development etc.
