Tralee development, Take 2

By DeadlySchnauzer 7 October 2010 29

The Queanbeyan Age quietly brings word that the public submissions process for the Tralee housing development has now started for the second time.

People might remember that the first submission process was shot down by the snowster in court earlier this year, either because of a small technicality or a fundamentally flawed plan (depending on who you believe).

Who’s cuisine will rein supreme this time round?

Anddd… go.

What’s Your opinion?

I must also add that I am from Sydney and a little noise from a plane that might last a few seconds is NOTHING compared to the CONSTANT noise from traffic in Sydney, cars, trucks, sirens and then helicopters over head are a constant daily noise, I’ll take a plane any day, well maybe depends on how big they are and how often they pass LOL!!

I find this all rather amusing!! I have recently moved here and am living in Jerra up on the hill on Waterfall Drive, the planes pass directly over top of our house so much so you feel you can rub their belly as they pass over, come see for yourself if you dont believe me! So either the planes have changed routes or these lots were sold knowing the planes flew overhead?? Anyway if you sell lots in a flight path surely its up to people whether they buy them or not?? I must also say that Tralee is actually a lot lower than were I am on the hill so surely the noise level will not be as bad as it is up here?? I am in desperate need of a block, so I will be lining up to buy one planes and all, beats seeing into your neighbours windows like in Gunghalin lol

There is already aircraft noise in areas like Hackett, Campbell and Jarrabomberra. Some may consider it ‘minor’ noise – some may not. The airport used to say that no Canberra resident would experience aircraft noise over 60 decibells. They’ve stopped saying that now, and the Hackett noise monitor registered aircraft noise in Hackett well over that.

It makes no sense at all to build under a flightpath. It will definitely attract noise complaints from the future residents.

Saying that 80% of planes go north means nothing – if the airport increases their flights, the 20% that go south could be quite a lot.

By the way I noticed the the average income in Queanbeyan now exceeds the ACT average for most areas, maybe a few of you bogans might step up one day and come and live in Queanbeyan/Jerrabomberra/Tralee if you can afford it?

bogans are still bogans no matter how much they earn

CUBs – Cashed up Bogans.

All this noise about noise…what say you “A noisy noise annoys an oyster”? Just how annoyed are you?

…has anyone else noticed how the word “noise” starts to look/sound really strange when you write/say it too many times?

If there is no possibility of noise sharing, and no problem cause it is not noisy in tralee anyway, then why is the airport spending considerable effort opposing it?

I believe this whole thing is a scare campaign by the airport simply because they want to minimise the number of potential people who can complain about low levels of noise. As i said earlier in the thread, there is nothing special about Tralee. It will receive equal or less noise than existing Canberra and Queanbeyan suburbs because it is much further out along the flight paths. The airports own noise maps back this up.

In fact the airports whole premise is based on a lie… they claim that Tralee will prevent planes taking off over rural land to the south, yet the primary runway faces the opposite direction and 80% of take offs are actually to the north.

The Federal Government Guidelines on greenfield sites around airports says there will be NO noise sharing so please explain to me where anyone will be disadvantaged? Why do you think the region will be hurt and why?
