Show Your Support for Happy Paws Fitness
Happy Paws Fitness is a local business caring for the dogs (big and small) of our local area. We provide dog daycare, walking and bathing services, and pride ourselves on our excellent service and positive relationships with our clientele and local community. We moved into our new McLachlan Avenue facility in late 2015 and since then, we would like to think that we have added to the vibrancy and character of our local community.
Despite this, and despite being in a Council designated mixed-use zone (which allows for businesses such as ours, mechanics, car dealerships, homes, etc.), we are currently facing very strong opposition to our business from a handful of residents from a neighboring residential building. Unfortunately, our staff and clientele have been and continue to be harassed and intimidated by one of our neighbours, whom has also taken their grievances to our local Council.
Several noise readings have been taken by the Council from the neighbor’s unit and our noise levels have never exceeded the legal limit. Nevertheless, we have spent a considerable amount of money on soundproofing, as well as implementing procedures to limit noise pollution. Our aim has always been to integrate into our local community as well as possible. Unfortunately, our neighbours continue their campaign to discredit and harm our small business.
We are working hard to find some middle ground to appease our neighbours whilst protecting the wellbeing of our staff, customers and the future of Happy Paws Fitness. In the meantime, we have drafted this petition to demonstrate to the Council that we provide a valuable service to our clients, our local community and that we should be allowed to continue to operate our little business!
