Telco tower con­cerns

Tweed Daily News - - NEWS -

TO­DAY I re­ceived a most dis­turb­ing let­ter no­ti­fy­ing me of (CPS Global Con­trac­tors’) in­ten­tion to lodge an ap­pli­ca­tion to coun­cil for the con­struc­tion of a 41.3m telecom­mu­ni­ca­tion tower to be erected on coun­cil prop­erty on Ter­ra­nora Road, Banora Point.

We live ad­ja­cent to this site and will be ad­versely af­fected in sig­nif­i­cant ways if this pro­posal was to be ap­proved.

Firstly, mine and other neigh­bour­ing prop­er­ties will see our real es­tate val­ues plum­met, se­condly the con­struc­tion of the tower will see it dwarf the al­ready un­pop­u­lar wa­ter tank, be­ing more than dou­ble its height.

The res­i­dents di­rectly af­fected by the pro­posal are al­ready suf­fer­ing se­vere hard­ship liv­ing di­rectly un­der Gold Coast Air­port’s flight path, with ever in­creas­ing noise and jet fuel ex­haust pol­lu­tion af­fect­ing our health and life­style, and now they wish to fur­ther de­stroy our day-to-day lives even more.

This hideous metal mon­stros­ity does not be­long in our back­yard.

We ob­ject most strongly and we will en­deav­our to protest re­lent­lessly un­til such time as this pro­posal is over­turned. — R.J. Browne, Banora Point
