From: Mission Beach ‘No Helicopters Here’ campaign supporters
To: Mission Helicopters
Dear Mr Cronin,
We refer to your business Mission Helicopters Air Services currently proposed and approved for 2224 Tully Mission Beach Road. We ask you to change its location to one where it cannot disrupt and disturb Mission Beach residents and wildlife.
Helicopter noise is extremely loud, unpleasant and intrusive. The recent increase in helicopters flying over Mission Beach and along the shoreline has shown just how disruptive and upsetting the noise can be to residents and shorebirds.
Local residents who value the natural context of Mission Beach and its village amenity know that a helicopter service in the heart of our villages can only have an unacceptable impact on the overall amenity of Mission Beach.
Your proposed helicopter aerodrome has already caused social division and continues to cause ongoing anxiety and stress within our community.
The No Helicopters Here campaign supporters respectfully appeal to you, Mr Cronin:
We ask you to locate your business to a place where it cannot disturb and disrupt Mission Beach residents, our peaceful residential lifestyle, and our sensitive and important wildlife.
