SCC refuses to assess safer alternative flight paths. Why?

There is no evidence of a comprehensive, comparative safety assessment of alternative flight paths by Sunshine Coast Council (SCC) and consultants; either before or after the emergence of the safety issue in 2013.

Can you give 10 minutes of your time this Sunday 1st September

ASA have now submitted their Airspace Change Proposal to CASA and the deadline for comment is 9 September. THIS IS THE KEY DECISION-MAKING MOMENT ON THE PROPOSED FLIGHT PATHS.

MARCUS DUNES WILDFLOWER WALK

FRIENDS OF LAKE WEYBA WILDFLOWER WALK TOMORROW
Sorry for the late notice! But The Friends of Lake Weyba have done an amazing wildflower walk annually – right under where the jets will be going over. Meet opposite 26 Hawthorn Grove in HAWTHORN park ( ALSO under jets ) and the entrance to East Weyba section Noosa National Park. We’ll take some protest photos too!!

TIME: 9am – 11.30am

MEET AT: HAWTHORN GROVE PARK

MEETING COMING SEP 1ST

Stay tuned for more info – a meeting September 1st at Peregian Community Centre and Our raffle draw too ( August 30 at Peregian Pub ) Once again we have done our homework and have documented a long list of shortcomings which will be brought to the attention of CASA. These cover everything from expiry of the original EIS, environment impacts, consultation failings, safety, and failure to address the terms of reference of the original EIS when it came to assessing impact on residents.

We strongly believe that CASA must direct Air Services Australia to go back to the drawing board and work with local communities to get an outcome that minimises environment and resident impacts.

We Need Your Help – Please Act Before Tomorrow

The fight to protect our beautiful environment from the impacts of these flight paths depends on us making our collective voices heard. Our small community association teams across the impacted shires and at Flight Path Forum have been doing our very best to do that on your behalf.

But we also know that individual objections matter, and that without them, Council – and ASA – have previously used the relatively low numbers of individual responses to these ‘consultation’ activities as an indication of the communities agreement to their proposals.  We must ensure they can’t use it again so we need your help. 

Time is running out.  There are now only ONE DAY left to make your voice heard about the Sunshine Coast Airport Master Plan.

RAFFLE UPDATE – THANKYOU !!

We were blown away by the response from the Community. People stopped to buy tickets, find out about the flightpaths, and to show their support for the campaign. There’s still plenty of fire in the belly of locals, and even the odd visitor from Brisbane or further afield!

STATE CO-ORDINATOR GENERAL STEPS DOWN – THE SUNSHINE COAST AIRPORT PLOT THICKENS

Behind the scenes, Flight Path Forum have been working to meet with the State Co-ordinator General in relation to the Flawed EIS he approved. A fair few of us have also written him some letters……with the same questions. A quick google search reveals he has the authority to keep SCC accountable for a very flawed process….all along…( Coordinator general role and responsibilities State Legislation )

THE HISTORY OF THE FIGHT

If the environment goes, there is no value for tourists or developers. Development must never be at the expense of our fragile environment. We cannot replace species or repair damage after it is done. PETER GARRETT 1989 on PROPOSED MOTORWAY OVER EASTERN BEACHES, NOOSA

It’s ridiculous to see such a great asset to the area could be lost because of a lack of proper studies and research
