What a beautiful holiday long weekend we had though no thanks to the small aircraft noise which polluted our air space pretty much the whole weekend and is continuing on just because they can.

The concept of ‘self regulation’ has no meaning to ‘business’  so these cowboys will keep pushing the limits with no care for anything but the smell of money. Always about the bloody money.

Byron shire is now the place where the next business can come, have the shire provide the infrastructure make the money, take it out of here and giving absolutely nothing back. Eventually though the golden goose will die.

As I write this, Byron Shire Council is trying to fix a sewerage problem in the centre of Byron. Good luck with that. Way too much faeces in this town.

So I write another letter to the Noise Ombudsman, which has no power only to politely negotiate with the flying machines. Perhaps I will go the the ombudsman that over sees the ombudsman.

Let us put our tax dollars to work for us. Swamp the ‘public servants’ with e-mails, letters, call the local police when the plane flies too low over your house and you can not hear your music. Keep them busy thus stopping them from coming up with ideas like a helicopter what!

So again no thanks.

  1. Exactly where are the eledged aircraft flying over and from where are they coming from???
    You make no mention of the location…

  2. Arnt all airports(I know Lismore is)another tax or ratepayers subsidy for the rich.The rich are the worst bludgers.Most of them anyway.

  3. Oh Susana I’ll bet you don’t know any of the aircraft registrations. Aircraft are legally allowed to desend below 500 feet when approaching or when leaving an airstrip
