Bellvista has again had a number of over flights by helicopters on Wednesday. Despite the “Fly Neighbourly Agreement” decreeing that flights should cease by 10 pm, there was still plenty of action in the skies over or very close to the estate last night around 10:30 pm.
BeCA President Les Thomas fired off yet another email seeking a response from the Sunshine Coast Airport CEO Peter Pallot regarding the investigation of last night’s overflights as well as the numerous concerns arising from last week.
Cr Grosskreutz has also joined the fray in insisting that Sunshine Coast CEO Peter Pallot provide answers as to what is happening, who are the pilots or companies which appear to blatantly disregard the Fly Neighbourly Agreement and what action is to be taken?
Last week BeCA requested that the Minister for Local Government Paul Lucas in his deliberations on the granting the extension of leases to Caloundra Airport lease holders for a further seven years, only permit the renewal of leases to Community Friendly industries. It would be expected that industries which blatantly disregard the “Fly Neighbourly Agreement” would not be considered “Community Friendly Industries”!
BeCA has never been provided with the opportunity to have input into the what goes into the “Fly Neighbourly Agreement”.
