Noise complaints for Caloundra Aerodrome
Residents often ask how to lodge noise complaints regarding Caloundra Aerodrome. You can email or phone through any noise complaints as follows:
Contact Air Services Australia on 1800 802 584 or
Contact the Sunshine Coast Airport by phoning 07 5453 1500 or lodge a complaint directly through the airport’s internet email address HERE.
Once a complaint is lodged, the Airport Operations Manager will complete the “action taken” section of the noise complaint form, and follow up within seven days. All complaints will be recorded for mapping of noise affected areas. At the end of each month, the airport receptionist will complete and update a noise graph for the Airport Monthly Report, as well as enter the noise complaints received each month via the airport’s internet mailbox.
If you are troubled by noise from the aerodrome, I encourage you to make a formal complaint as only then will we have a clear picture of noise patterns and those areas most affected.
Please note that residents can have their pets microchipped at the discounted rate of $25 per animal at the Caloundra Cricket Club at Lewis Street, Caloundra, on Saturday 1 May from 10am to 2pm. Residents are asked to bring their cats in cages and dogs on leashes.
Free bush tucker trees
My next free tree day is planned for Saturday 1 May and it will include bush tucker trees that are not only perfect for the Coast’s climate, but can be served at the dinner table.
By bringing along your rates notice, you can choose from free bush tucker trees or regular natives. Locations and times are:
8am-10am Uniting Park, Glass House
11am-1pm Peachester (between the hall and school)
3pm-4.30pm Central Park, Bellvista (near sales office)
As usual, council nursery staff will be on hand to help with gardening advice. We will also be giving away free bush tucker recipes and you can sample a bush tucker tasting platter with some mouth-watering creations including wattle seed damper, bush tomato dip and lemon myrtle cheesecake.
Bush tucker trees have the added advantage of not needing much water or fertiliser, as they are made for the local conditions. Residents can bring old rates notices that haven’t been stamped before as well as current notices.
