Cobden Airport Win

Around 60 planes a month land at the airport including emergency services and fire bombers.

Committee Member Bill Woodmason says during the St Patrick Day fires there was about a dozen aircraft operating out of the Cobden airport.

He says it's an extremely valuable asset to the local community.

He says the VCAT decision is a win for all those in the community that stood up against the wind farm development.
