Wow. I don't know if this is just a predictable situation or if a journalism template or what, but this is all the same pattern.
1) Resident has their slice of paradise ruined by Company.
2) Company making a problem declares they don't want to be a problem and points out they spent money on it, and they meet regulations - as if these things make any difference to the actual problem.
This is almost as bad as the Neighbourhood-Distressed-By-Traffic Of The Week (pick one, any one) reported in the local flyer wrappers - "People drive too fast through here and police should do something about it says local person with dog, child or driveway."
