↘ Noisy problem
I CAN clearly understand that the people complaining about the proposed flight path for the new runway at Sunshine Coast may have a valid complaint.
However, having lived next to London Airport and Brisbane Airport I would have to say that I would much prefer to put up with the aircraft noise, than the all day (and sometimes nights) screeching, smell and mess of up to half a million bats that we have been dealing with for the past six years.
Noosa Council has been completely disinterested in taking the slightest action to reduce the number of bats in our region, e. by trimming some of the trees to reduce the area for the bats to roost.
They have been patronising and pretty much ignore us altogether now, which, as Noosa ratepayers, is just not good enough.
I might add that there were no flying foxes here when these houses were built 17 years ago, or when we bought our house.
In fact it appears that the trees were actually planted by the Noosa Council.
In my view they have an enormous responsibility for taking some action on this issue to care for their residents. — NORAH LILLEY Noosa
