Mozzies Invasion in Williams Landing
It all started with one resident noticed that 4 to 5 mozzies has appeared in their backyard in the evening. The concern then escalated to bazillion of mozzies appearance in the middle of the day in a month time. The issue is also experienced shared by few other neighbours who reside around the lake near Airmaid Drive Playground, i.e those who live on Fogarty St, Polaris Cct, Electra Dr, Beehive Dr, Airmaid Dr, Abbots Ave, Hartwood Ave.
In May 2020, one of the residents reached out to the Wyndham City Council to check who will be responsible to manage the pest of the artificial wetlands and got confirmed it is still under the developer responsibilities, which the issue parked under ID number PRKR0022/20 with the council.
The developer has an ample amount of time since then before the lockdown to organise an ecologist to investigate and propose a solution to this. But no action has been seen until September 2020.
Residents are concerned of the amount of mozzies that now invaded the neighbourhood, not just in the evening even during daylight. This is a potential OHS issue and who knows where this will lead, perhaps a new type of virus spread by mozzies.
We request the council's assistance to protect the residents' rights to live in a safe environment. This has passed beyond a comfort issue to OHS type.
