THE risk of flooding in areas immediately surrounding Bankstown Airport might have increased because of a large amount of landfill deposited on the airport site in recent years, according to two Bankstown councilors.

Council reneges on deal

The deal, which dates back to 1999, saw council agreeing to swap a narrow section of land it managed for the State Government near the intersection of Milperra Road and Henry Lawson Drive for airport owned land near Bankstown Basketball stadium.
