    Peter Wilson commented

    My question is, what building works are being requested to carry out on the tennis court at 8 Bethany Close Rye? My property faces north west and over looks the tennis court area of the property, Therfore it would be important for me to be aware of any changes that mat affect or impact my poperty.

    Eric Collier commented

    I object to the proposed development. Henry Street is a public thoroughfare for pedestrians that links the shopping centre to Blacks Camp Rd via a scenic walk through reserves and neighbouring streets. The proposal implies that the current road reserve will be alienated from the Crown and sold off, which will reduce the amenity of the area for walking.

    My whole family look forward to the Airshow every 2nd year and can’t wait to see it again next year! It is a no brainer to continue with this wonderful event

    Grace Roberts commented

    I'd like to know the reason for so many trees to be removed. Are they unhealthy or becoming dangerous?

    Local pines provide shelter for parrots and wildlife, and they also add to the natural character of our peninsula community. I'd like to know what is planned for this space.

    I've looked at the Balnarring Township Structure Plan adopted by Council on 19 August, but saw no specific mention of why 196 trees would be removed from Civic Ct Reserve.

    I'd like to request more information, please.

    To: Paul Murphy

    Dear Paul

    Could you please send details of planning application P19/1963 - removal of Pine Trees.
    The planning application on the shire website did not mention what is planned for that space and what the trees will be replaced with.

    Looking forward to hearing from you

    Michele & Tony Guest commented

    The air show at tyabb airfield should definitely go ahead. This show puts tyabb on the map and brings lots of tourists to our little town. Not to mention the charities & local businesses that benefit from this magnificent event. We are residents who live adjacent to the airport and we love it.
    MPSC should be ashamed of their behaviour during the past few months in regards to the PAC and the tyabb airfield.

    Michele Guest commented

    I absolutely object to this lifestyle community being build in Stuart road tyabb. I agree wholeheartedly with David Farthings comment about the planning process being made a mockery of. I spoke to a lady months ago who told me she was moving to this lifestyle community. How can that be so when planning permits hadn’t even been lodged?
    1. Tyabb does not have the infrastructure to cope with 180 of these units.
    2. As a resident who lives off of Stuart road, it is hard enough to turn right at Mornington tyabb road as it is without increased traffic.
    3. Stuart road is in terrible condition & is not wide enough.
    4. Why would anyone put a lifestyle community between a railway line with trains that run in the early hours of the morning and an airport?
    5. There is not enough parking at the shops in Frankston flinders road tyabb now, & increased traffic will cause accidents with more cars pulling in & out of parking spots into the main road. It’s a problem now, it will only get worse.
    6. The traffic at school times outside flinders college & tyabb primary is bedlam now, increased traffic in this area will be catastrophic.
    A definite NO

    Jane Pincott commented

    I would like to object to the removal of this beautiful old coastal manna gum. I understand that this tree has become an issue for buses entering Balnarrring Beach but ask that you please consider other options for management of this. This tree provides important habitat for our rapidly dwindling koala population. The beauty of this old tree also adds to the character of our town and is enjoyed by residents as they enter. The small number of buses, low speed limit and minimal traffic in this area surely do not warrant the removal of such a significant tree.

    Mark Payton commented

    I am objecting to the removal of the Manna Gum which marks the entrance to Balnarring Bch , as a local resident l cherish the beautiful environment that surrounds myself and my family , as l understand the reason for the removal is because the bus has to turn wide slightly to miss it , l would like you to keep in mind that the bus has been coming passed that point for at least 35yrs without incident and the idea that cutting down any tree especially this particular one on the very slim chance that it’s a danger doesn’t stake up ,
    Please leave the tree !

    Everyone, (particularly the elderly and their families considering buying into these ‘resorts’), should google
    Alan Kohler, ‘Complex Contracts and the Lifestyle Village Swindle’. ABC.
    But, I fear the developer and the shire are in covert league: they both stand to make money, after all ! And who cares about the aesthetic and social well-being of a small local community when money can be made ?

    I would like to object to the removal of this very old Coastal Manna Gum, Eucalyptus viminalis pryroriana on the grounds that it is extremely valuable as an amenity tree as well as habitat for birds, koalas etc. It provides local character for the seaside village, heralding the entrance into beautiful relaxing Balnarring beach, a tourist destination. Old trees like these create a sense of well being for local people who love the area for its natural values. This tree has been here for a very long time and could easily be protected by building a traffic calming Shikane under its canopy thereby re directing vehicles away from it and avoiding collision by taller vehicles like buses and trucks. We have lost most of the large old Banksia integrifolias after last summers dry spell. The local beachside forests have been dramatically altered recently. I would suggest that the council replant naturestrips, roadside reserves and offer free Banksia integrifolias to replant where these huge old giant Banksias have just died and are mostly still standing.

    Trees like these are precious on the peninsula. It is only in Balnarring and Shoreham that remnant trees as majestic as these still exist. They should be treasured not flippantly destroyed.

    Totally support the Tyabb Airshow and the PAC . Missed the last one due to ill health and was counting on being at next years and was disturbed to find it might not have happened . So many classic historical aircraft based there !

    Total support for this not for profit organisation!
    Great event recognised world wide and a great benefit to tyabb township!

    Still in disbelief at the actions of Mornington peninsula shire council over the past months! Council should be dismissed for incompetence!
    And maybe a closer look should be had into matters of corruption!

    I’m a local resident and I’m very supportive of this event proceeding for the local Tyabb and greater Mornington Pen community.

    I have had the pleasure to attend the Tyabb Airshow on a number of occasions. It is well-run with the appropriate eye to safety. It’s a great community event that supports local groups & businesses. It’s just a travesty that people who know little about aviation are scare-mongering and spreading inaccuracies. The planning permit should be granted forthwith.

    We cannot wait!
    My family, children & grand children always enjoy the day at the Tyabb Airshow.
    We are so lucky to have such a great facility on the Mornington Peninsula.
    I learnt to fly there and my grandson now hopes he can learn there too.

    The air show is such an important asset to the community and I’m looking forward to attending it again next year. MPSC need to provide more support for the event.

    I fully support the PAC and their airshow, The permit must be approved without any further delay to remove all uncertainty. MPSC should also be actively encouraging PAC with the operation of their Airport, it is a vital community asset.

    Jeff Bailey commented

    I support the PAC fully and look forward to the air show as many others do. It seems very odd that this year there is so much bureaucracy involved ? I can not see why the MPSC are making it so difficult this year. Do they have a dislike of the PAC and its fund raising activities for charities.

    The Tyabb Airshow rates highly as a great airshow and brings people from all over to the small community , it punches well above its weight compared to bigger events because of the many volunteers who drive it .
    Its a great drawcard for the region , showcasing Australian and International Aviation history
    For future generations to learn from and enjoy
    I cant imagine Tyabb without it

    Frank Andrewartha commented

    I hope the airshow can go ahead. My family attends it biannually and its gravity is such that there are many attendees coming from quite a distance including interstate. It would be a loss on many levels if it does not proceed. I do not understand why such a long standing event is being obstructed by what appears to be an intransigent council group.

    Norm Edmunds commented

    Tyabb Airshow is a major fundraiser for local charities who really need the financial support that the airshow brings once every two years.
    The organisers have many years experience running a safe airshow.
    The pilots are all seasoned airshow pilots following all applicable air safety requirements, in aircraft that are maintained in accordance with CASA requirements for their specific types.
    Tyabb Airshow is known right around the country and overseas.
    I support the Tyabb Airshow 2020.

    A great local community event that attracts thousands of people to the area and generates interest for young people in an industry (aircraft maintenance and flying) that needs them for its future. This needs to be approved 👍👍

    I have been a resident and emergency services worker (multi agency) in the immediate area since 1985.
    The Tyabb Air Field and Airshow have been large contributors to the region bringing work, income, entertainment and lifestyle!
    The unique bi annual show at Tyabb rates, in my experiences, better than the Avalon International Airshow in so many ways!
    The show must go on!!
    Thanks PAC and all involved.

    Crashing Planes commented

    This is the wrong venue for an airshow. Thousands of people potentially in the danger zone of a major crash. Council would be liable in the event of an accident if the approved this. Key objections

    1. Majority of pilots they have are private pilots. Low qualifications and not commercial standard
    2.The planes are maintained some to low or EXPERIMENTAL standard and prone to accidents
    3. The public viewing area is too dangerous and there is no immediate escape for thousands in event of accident or fire.
