Airport sees hope of blocking Tralee

By johnboy - 29 June 2009 36

The Canberra Times is reporting that somewhere out there an un-named part of government has released a discussion paper which is saying things Canberra Airport really likes in its ongoing battle against the planned sprawling Tralee development under their southern flight paths.

    The discussion paper, which follows a green paper issued in December to shape a new national aviation policy, suggests avoiding residential and other noise sensitive developments in corridors under flight paths.

    It raises a more conservative criteria for developments under flight paths, particularly in relation to development of greenfield sites or where other options are available. Canberra Airport managing director Stephen Byron said the Commonwealth was sick of residents moving to live under flight paths and complaining about the noise.

It’s good that Steve Byron can speak for the Commonwealth now.

What’s Your opinion?

If you actively choose to live under a current flight path, you need to have rocks in your head.

I really hope that Tralee is knocked back, because we all know what will happen, residents move in, realise that planes do make noise, and they will join the “Curfew 4 Canberra” mob.

Curfew 4 Canberra gains more support and the airport – through no fault of it’s own will have to bow to these morons.

People who want to stop planes from flying overhead at 2am are “morons”?

Whichever side of this debate you are on (curfew 4 canberra OR the airport) building at Tralee seems like a dim idea.

The paper said the buildings will mitigate noise with insulation, double glazing and evaporative cooling. Now for evap cooling you have to have windows open. Is it the noise of the evap cooling that will drown out the planes overhead?

People that move in to the flight path of aircraft around an Airport and then try to whinge about the noise are certainly “morons”.

If you don’t like it don’t live there. Another question, why would the Government of the day allow the developers to try to develop the land for residential use anyways? It is only going to end up in this sort of crap argument.

If you have moved into a place where planes have the potential to fly overhead at 2am (so basically anywhere under an established flight path) and then complain about it, then yes…

Why should the NSW govt be restricted in where it develops? The ACT govt certainly didn’t give any thought to it neighbours when locating the gaol…

i could care less if tralee was built – so long as the people who buy the houses there realise they are consenting to living under a fixed flight path.

yep – Trallee is a jusrisdictional nightmare.

Airport – Federals controls (such as they are).

Areas affected when new flightpaths are created to take pressure off Trallee – ACT

Trallee – NSW govt.

NSW govt approved Trallee – they don’t care if the rest of the ACT gets more noise when Trallee residents start complaining.

This would have been an occasion for the Feds to step in, but they just stood back and did nothing. Pity they don’t hold back on other issues when the ACT wants to make laws.

What has the ACT government got to do with this. Steven Byron is from the airprot, which as we all know is a Snow Enterprise.

Regardless of weather the land is in the ACT or NSW it should not be built on if it is under any existing aproach paths. Simple as that.

Oh Willo it would be good to see the speedway back, but the whingers in Jerra might have a thing or two to say about that. They did play a small hand in the demise of the site. (The main reason was a family blue after the death of the owner)

If they build it, there will be noise sharing.

Yeah, right.

If Traless gets built, the ACT will bear its fair share of noise.

Why should the citizens of the ACT be penalised further by more parasitic development in NSW. Not only are we already disadvantaged financially by these leaches we have to put up with their carping criticism.

Sure as eggs if Tralee goes ahead sometime in the future there will be claims for further noise sharing.
