A reminder of what we will be losing!


  1. Maintaining peace in the Mountains

    Lately the noise from the sewage works has increased beyond a reasonable limit

    Trail bike riding by unlicensed and unregistered trail bikes is still occurring

    That combined with building noise if the airstrip development goes through, the already unacceptable amount of noise from the highway t(hat can be heard from up to 20 minutes from the highway) and even the possible future threat of Double B trucks on the Pacific Highway means that this peaceful area - peace and quiet with the loudest noise only being the birdsongs - one of the main attractions apart from the bushland - could be lost!

  2. Please call the Sydney Water Board on 132092 and voice your concerns over the increasing and disturbing level of noise coming from the Sewage Works at the bottom of Robb Avenue.

    Let it be known to prospective buyers that they are buyer near a sewage works and they will rightly be put off

  3. Trail bike riding should be banned from built up areas - and in the Mountains altogether. The noise and pollution from these things effects the environment in many ways yet it is still happening in Hat Hill Road, Robb Avenue and Godson Avenue.

    No Trail Bike riding in the Mountains, the Megalong or unauthorised areas within the noise vicinity of farms, houses or built up areas

  4. The noise from the Highway and coals trains can already be heard as far down as the Blackheath airstip - Council should be aware that noise from the Highway is at an unacceptable level

  5. I like Dirt Bike Jump and attend it so many time. If it relocated at Hat Hill Road. It too far from the Parking Near BMCC. So many peoples are like to avoid to visit the Dirt Bike Jump. Is I am think right.
