This major industrial development on the fringe of our CBD and adjacent to major residential suburbs of East Launceston, Newstead and Central launceston including schools, hospitals and tourist accomodation should be a major concern for all.
The large truck movements through our city in and out to service this large and ever expanding industry creates major traffic problems. The noise that the trucks, massive forklifts and clanging containers, and reverse beepers starts from 4.30am onwards and goes all day and often weekends. There are currently no restrictions on operating hours.
Wait for the trains/rail to join the circus!! Do we really value our heritage City and tourism and lifestyle? Call me a sceptic but when would you lodge a potentially controversial DA? let me think, 1 day before Easter, when everyone turns off for 7-10 days, an extension to the time for public comment surely seems appropriate, Aldermen.
