    You are so right Margie. Ask Jeffry Haggett where he lives and you can be sure it is not near a noisy place, sound wall or not, those BOOM BOXES carry sound no matter what one dose. Have a nice night.

    Let's use the same fence then to allow the family camp site in Blackhead.

    An acoustic fence is nice, but , generally speaking, the smells, the traffic, the noise and the gulls that come with drive-thrus are really a pain in the ass to residents in the immediate area. One wonders if developers and municipal councils don't give a $hit about what residents have to put up with as long as it's not in their backyard.

    They should have a buffer of 26 Meters, but ordinary taxpayers are ignored try and do this in the preceous downtown , only certain people "quality of life" matters .It will be interesting to see if those that lobbied certain councillors will also contribute to those same councillors election campaign .

    This certainly seems like typical NIMBYism. There are a few issues I have with drive-throughs, but this is not one of them. They're not THAT noisy, and if you don't want to deal with noise you should not live just off Topsail Road. There are at least two drive-throughs just down the street which are also backed by residential areas. If the owner is building this fence just to be a good neighbour then more power to him, but he should not be required when many other business owners in the city are getting a free pass.

    Good Luck with that. I live in the area behind the Burger King on Torbay Rd. Between deliveries at 5:30 in the morning, people with the radio blasting (poor souls must be deaf), occassional visits by the party bus at 12:00 in the night that feels the whole neighbourhood is up and wants to listen to thier music not to mention other issues. (Did I mention the visits by our friendly neighbourhood seagulls). There should NEVER be any fast food restaurants or drive thrus located in residential areas. If these restaurants had been proposed in areas where our city councillors live they would never have been approved.
