I got this email today, I don’t even know how I got on to this mailing list…
â€ŽSOS – Save Our Suburbs/Save Our Serenity
â€œHowâ€™s the serenity?â€ asks Darryl Kerrigan (Michael Caton, â€œThe Castleâ€) whilst on holidays at Bonnydoon. He and his family had to go on holiday to escape the everyday reality of aircraft noise over their home.
In Canberra, we have the serenity in our suburbs now, because jet planes arenâ€™t allowed to fly over our homes â€“ instead they fly over rural properties north and south of the airport. But if houses are built at Tralee directly under these flight paths, it wonâ€™t be long till they complain and try and move the noise back over Canberra like it was before 1995 â€“ see below. Like the Kerrigans, you will need to go on holiday to escape the aircraft noise.
