There seems to be a significant increase of the use of leafblowers in the area. The noise levels are very high and unpleasant at all times of day, many days a week - but most importantly, there has been research demonstrating how bad they are for the environment - many US states have banned them, and Germany has introduced cautionary guidance. Insects, in particular, appear to suffer. Would it be possible to provide council guidance on the use of leafblowers? We’re all trying to do our bit to save energy and save the environment!
