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
