As residents of Point Leo located at 30 Nobby Street we are located 750m away from the proposed helipad. Point Leo is unique on the Mornington Peninsula for its lack of noise pollution. Water powercraft are unable to launch at Point Leo and as such the community is able to enjoy peaceful and quiet enjoyment of our beautiful location. Like powered watercraft, the proposed helipad and associated noise associated with helicopters landing and taking off would seriously impact on the overall amenity and attractiveness of this destination. Further the proposed location is on the uphill side of the Point Leo community and as such would exacerbate the impact of both the aural and visual disturbance associated with helicopters both landing and taking off. This helipad is also setting a precedent for the area that is unwelcome by the Pt Leo community and unwarranted. The helipad is an entirely discretionary request so on the grounds noted above we strongly object to this application being approved
