East Haldon residents express concern about Motopark

EAST Haldon residents were given a chance to voice their ongoing concern surrounding Black Duck Valley Motopark in a special meeting held by Lockyer Valley Mayor, Steve Jones.

The residents called for council to suspend the motopark's Development Application (DA) due to excessive noise disruptions and other alleged breaches of the DA's conditions.

The speakers outlined their key concerns about how the park was impacting their livelihood.

Matt Handford and his family live just 370 meters away from one of the park's motocross track.

"The bikes sound like they are in our front yard," Mr Handford said.

"We are forced to lock ourselves inside with TVs or music on and it's unbearable in the heat.

"And whenever we hear the bikes we experience immediate stress."

Park owner, Doug Glen, was given a chance to address the concerned residents at the meeting.

Mr Glen said currently the park was for private use only, but he had goals of opening to the public in the future.
