TO THE council who made the decision to allow a farmer to install fans to blow frost off his orchard.
(This has been) at the cost of no sleep for hundreds of people at 2am on the morning on August 26, 2020.
This is when I woke up to the fans blowing.
I had to head to work at 7.30am, with no sleep.
This is not the first time.
I have an 18-year-old boy who is doing his Higher School Certificate and he needs sleep. The woman living across the road from us has a newborn.
They need sleep.
Did you do you homework before approving regarding the decibels of a fan and the decibels of all of them running at the same time?
I am still waiting for the letter in the mailbox telling me this is being proposed.
It comes at a cost of sleepless nights for Wattle Hill, Amesbury, and Toorak Road residents.
I can see the fans from my backyard.
Is there more of these coming?
I can see more trees being planted and not even a tree line to block the sound.
It seems you are leaving yourself open for people to take you to court and you have the hide to ask us to vote you back in.
I suppose we decided to live on the wrong side of the bridge and the fans are not near your house so you don't care about us.
Note: Council policy allows for frost fans provided they meet the Environment Protection Authority noise regulations of 55 decibels one metre outside and 35 decibels inside a residence in a rural zone. For a residential zone it becomes 45 decibels one metre outside and 25 decibels inside a residence.
