Mayor's statement: Blue Mountains City Council is strongly opposed to the impacts on the City identified in the EIS
Blue Mountains City Council is strongly opposed to the impacts on the City of Blue Mountains identified in the EIS:
- Excessive, intrusive noise for residents 24/7
- Air pollution and emissions affecting public health
- Loss of tourism economy
- Threat to World Heritage listed Greater Blue Mountains National Park
- Danger to Sydney’s Drinking Water Catchment
The Council also believes that 60 days to respond to the EIS isn’t long enough to consider a very lengthy and technically complex document.
The Council opposes flight path activity being concentrated over the Blue Mountains and the impact on our local community and quality of life.
Mayor, Cr Mark Greenhill
