The New South Wales Planning Minister will not confirm reports he is likely to approve a housing development underneath a flight path into Canberra Airport.
Fairfax media is reporting Brad Hazzard is likely to approve the South Tralee development but a spokeswoman for the Minister says no decision has been made.
Canberra Airport has been fighting plans to build the housing development for years.
The airport's managing director Stephen Byron says the development would jeopardise Canberra's chances of becoming Sydney's second airport.
"It would put international flights into and out of the airport at off peaks times, it would ultimately lead to a curfew on Canberra Airport," he said.
"People don't want to live in houses under flight paths, it doesn't make sense and common sense says this shouldn't occur."
