South Tralee goes ahead

johnboy 6 November 2012 127

The Village Building Company is celebrating victory in their long march to build a ghetto under the flight path of Canberra Airport across the border in NSW, which in turn is likely to shift the flight paths over Canberra.

“Home ownership is everyone’s dream. Queanbeyan has been starved of well-located affordable housing for seven years. This decision means that young families looking to buy their first home near Jerrabomberra can now get into the housing market. The rezoning of Tralee will restore jobs, growth and opportunity to the families and businesses of Jerrabomberra and Queanbeyan” Mr Winnel said.

South Tralee has been rezoned by the NSW Minister for Planning as the first stage of Queanbeyan City Council’s plan to develop houses and community facilities in the South Jerrabomberra region.

“The rezoning has only been achieved through the commitment and tenacity of the Member for Monaro John Barilaro. The project has also achieved strong support from Queanbeyan Council’s Mayor Tim Overall, all nine other Councillors, the Jerrabomberra Residents Association, the Queanbeyan Business Council and sporting clubs and community groups throughout Queanbeyan.

They’ve also produced a lovely fact sheet.

And I think you’ll find that 400,000 pissed off voters have far more pull than the 20,000 residents of scruff-ville.

400000 voters in a safe seat < 20000 scruff-ville residents in a bellwether swing seat, if you're talking Federal. 400000 ACT residents = 0 if you're talking NSW State election.
I'm sure Queanbeyan will look upon the Ozymandian feet of HenryBG's wrathful democracy and piss itself laughing.

You do see the point I’m making, though… right? The ACT hasn’t cared one iota about its neighbour, but expects NSW to consider how their decisions might impact Canberrans…

You’re not making that point very well considering the issue here isn’t about how Tralee might impact Canberrans, but how Canberra might impact Tralee with its aircraft noise.

It is sad though that your scruffy town feels neglected and uncared-for by Canberrans – what would you like us to do to make it better?

The point’s been made. You’re just being deliberately ignorant, as usual.

Yes, the point has been made that some extraordinarily stupid and short-sighted people are planning a residential development under a flight path.

Here’s hoping Terry Snow can get hold of some good loud jets and have them flying in relay very low over Tralee all day every Saturday once the display homes are up.

And let’s hope the Canberra Airport has the balls to develop a specialised procedure for dealing with noise complaints from Tralee: straight in the bin.

Henry, henry, henry… you’ve got it all wrong. That noise will be shared with Canberra, thus reducing any discomfort to future residents to a minimum.

I think you will find that the results of democracy in Canberra will be a unanimous “no” to changing any flight paths to suit people who’ve stupidly chosen to go and live under them.

And I think you’ll find that flight paths are managed by a federally owned organisation who doesn’t care two hoots about ‘democracy in Canberra’.

Also how much money from Canberra actually pours into the Queanbeyan economy?

Wrong question.

It should be “how much money pours out of Canberra’s economy by treating Queanbeyan people at Canberra Hospital and taking Queanbeyan kids in Canberra’s public schools?”

When I have been in Canberra Hospital, a large percentage of the patients were from areas of NSW from Young down to far south coast. The NSW government pays an amount to the ACT government for this service. I don’t know the amount, but I do know that Katy Gallagher was very happy with the new agreement she negotiated with the NSW Liberal government. If the ACT wasn’t treating these regional patients, we probably wouldn’t have some of the excellent facilities such as the world class neurosurgery theatres.

No one has anything? Oh comes on, this is easy:

– Vilified By Canberra
– Violating Basic Common-sense
– Vexatious Bastards Consuming

Voted Biggest C***s.

What’s that word that word for the thing when you tell all your friends to avoid and not do business with a company because of how horrible they are?

Green-Labor MLA Katy Gallagher is not so keen on Tralee development because even if she triples rates, she won’t see a single cent out of the 5000 home project,

seriously, why don’t they just extend the border. (or put up a fence)

Are you suggesting that the only reason they put a fence around the luxurious AMC was to keep the Qbeings out?

I can see why Labor MLC Steve Whan supports Tralee development. He is a good man, but only held his seat by 2% and desperately needs more urban (if not urbane) constituents.

Change the name of Canberra to Greater West Queanbeyan.

An interesting article in the Telegraph this morning says that of the 30000 thousand complaints received in the last 12 months about noise at Sydney airport , 20000 came from one person.. Who lives 30km from airport…and not even under a flight path. Another 4000 complaints came from a second individual.

Just goes to show how one Nimby can really affect the numbers!
