Fancy a cheap home with some noise pollution? Try Tralee!
Sorry I kid, I don’t know these places will be cheap.
Managing Director of the Village Building Company, Mr. Bob Winnel, today announced that Canberra Airport and The Village Building Company have signed an agreement, settling their differences concerning the development of Tralee. The Airport has also accepted that Village Building will take full ownership of South Tralee.
“South Tralee complies with the Australian Standard for housing in areas affected by aircraft noise. The agreement enables Village Building to construct 1500 homes and a range of community and commercial facilities at South Tralee. It also facilitates the rezoning of a similar area of land earmarked for residential development by the NSW Department of Planning, adjacent to and immediately south of South Tralee,” said Mr Winnel.
Canberra Airport accepts residential development occurring at South Tralee and on adjacent land outside of the current 20 ANEF noise contour, in accordance with the decision of 6 November 2012 of the NSW Minister for Planning. This decision reduced the extent of development proposed on Tralee and adjacent lands, by half.
“Homes will be insulated against aircraft noise and sales contracts will include warnings about aircraft noise and the future growth in air traffic.” Mr Winnel said.
The agreement protects the airport against claims for a curfew.
If they do insulate well and are cheap than that’s good news for everyone I suppose.
Anyone keen to live that close to the airport?
