Rural Residents protecting rural character

One of the fundamental attributes of a rural environment is the peace and quiet it provides. The motocross track at the bottom of Ardmore Quarry Road has increased it\'s activity significantly. The number of meetings has moved from one Sunday a month to 3 times a week, including every Saturday and Sunday. Residents are up in arms and a hearing is pending in the new year. We are looking for support from other rural residents and others who would object to such an operation at their back door. The noise of 30+ bikes is horrendous, intrusive and not in keeping with the rural character of our area. Help us to protect the rural character of NZ for everyone. Would you like a motocross track as a neighbour Show your support for keeping rural area\'s quiet by signing our petition. Points of interest. * council owns the land not the motocross track (cost of use of land $1-00 per year, no rates) * consent was never given for a \"Track\" * majority of the riders don\'t live in the area * is it a club or is it a commercial venture * such noise is a health hazard

    Comments: The application for a Resource Consent by Maunkau Trail Riders be rejected by the Papakura District Council. This is not a permitted activity nor is it in keeping with natural rural character of this area.
