This proposed development will negatively impact on the rural lifestyle, productive agriculture and economy of the entire Bega Valley Region.

It will directly affect Bega township, surrounding villages Wolumla, Candelo, Bemboka and beyond, not just the area around Frogs Hollow.

  • 130 flying hours per day, 7 days a week
  • 360 students each flying 33 hours every 12 week period
  • Major air traffic and pollution

The impacts are:

MAJOR LOSS OF AMENITY – it will destroy peace and tranquillity forever – we will lose lifestyle quality and the existing character of the picturesque Bega Valley.

NOISE POLLUTION – the frequency of events, level of sound and annoying noise characteristics of aircraft noise will affect the mental and physical health of people in the Bega Valley community and harass livestock.

AIR POLLUTION – the fuel and exhaust fumes will impact on tank water quality for residents and nearby waterways impacting on residents’ and livestock health.

DEVALUATION OF PROPERTIES – it will decimate the financial futures of residents that have spent years building and developing their properties and homes.

NEGATIVE ECONOMIC IMPACT – it will ruin the clean green image of our cheese industry and other local produce. It will significantly damage our tourism industry which is based on the serenity of the district. It will deter the desire to build a life in this beautiful part of the world, which is where future economic growth lies – impacting investment and sustainable development for the region.

RESTRICTIVE DEVELOPMENT – It will prohibit future residential or increased housing density between Bega and Wolumla forcing development elsewhere.

FIRE RISK – Will be greatly increased risk with stored fuel, required airstrip maintenance and aircraft collisions and accidents.

 

Such development is totally unsuitable for a rural shire and goes against the key objectives of Bega Valley Shire Development Control Plan.
