Sydney and Camden Airports

Competitive neutrality investigation report

This investigation report was released on 20 December 2001.

The report is an investigation into whether an inappropriate application of competitive neutrality to airport land, and to Sydney Airports Corporation Limited and Camden Airport Limited, has led to a loss of tax revenue to local councils and the potential erosion of their rate base. It also examines whether businesses outside the airports are disadvantaged in competing with businesses within the airport sites by virtue of the latter being ‘subsidised’ by the failure to appropriately apply competitive neutrality principles.
