sheesh - this is happening in darlinghurst too. i have to say, it's so tedious. the pram brigade should not move to suburbs that are well known for noise. i applaud tom mcfeely - he stands up for himself and he wins.

inner city living = noise = deal with it
I am no fan of the peel but i respect that they stand up for themselves. If you want to live next to a pub, bar, night club you know that you are going to be feeling some vibrations or hearing some noise. If that bothers you, maybe consider another run down industrial shed as a home.
If anyone knows brisbane + fortitude valley they will know that there are all these plans now about lowering noise in the music heart of Australia. Brisbane is listed among the top five cities in the world for breeding amazing music talent, it will be sad if it is ever lost. Some venues are already feeling the pinch... its very sad

how can an internal smoker's courtyard be rejected by local residents? I thought this area was filled with funky eclectic people. then again, there are always losers in every suburb who think they are mightier than everyone else.

yes this is happening in Newtown and Erskineville all I can say to them is if you wanna have kids raise them out somewhere like Dee Why for God's sake

Go the the Peel! Its a Melbourne institution like it or hate it! Dear residents near the Peel - bugger off! Don't live inner city if you want quiet...try moving to the country which, I hope, will be noise free enough for you !

The REALLY interesting thing here is that only since VCAT's determination in relation to The Peel's exemption from the Sexual Discrimination Act has this 'noise issue' reared its ugly head. Tom is a clever man and he has a devoted staff to back him - he will win this fight!

They already have an internal smoker's courtyard... It's called a chimney!

Given the length of the Peel's tenure [and associated license], I would find it very surprising that this can't be fought to an inevitable Peel victory. Let's hope sense prevails at least. Maybe after which the people developing and selling warehouses as apartments will properly brief their prospective purchasers.

I think if it's taken to court then someone should sue the developers for building sub standard apartments. It's a pity that council approved the apartments in the first place, without properly considering some long-term implications. Surely there should be tougher laws in relation to this, ensuring developers instal proper double-glazed glass etc. Do the neighbours also complain about the factories that operate by day in the area?

Hey people. Some very nasty people are spreading rumours that The Peel has closed. This is definitely not the case! I am an employee there and as far as I can recall I've been working every night for the last couple of weekends. Please pass on to all that The Peel IS NOT CLOSED!!!!
