Who holds Council accountable for its noise pollution?
In response to the article "Outdoor play space upgraded" that appeared in Peninsula News edition 472; we live with constant noise pollution from ventilator fans at the south entrance of the Peninsula Leisure Centre.
This noise has been 24/7 problem since February this year.
So I was surprised to read about the centre's multiple and expensive upgrades outlined by Mr Anthony Burling in this article.
We have made centre staff, Central Coast Council and mayor Cr Jane Smith aware of the noise problem, which is so bad we can't sit in our backyard, but so far no one have acknowledged or rectified the problem.
If it is true that an "upgrade to the centre's ventilation system" is on the cards, then the Peninsula Leisure Centre might reach out and communicate the timings of these upgrades to the residents most affected by the noise of their facility and indicate if these upgrades will include soundproofing.
Otherwise, who holds Council accountable when they breach their own noise pollution guidelines?
