Planning application at 108 Bells Pocket Road, Strathpine QLD 4500
May 21, 2017, 3:06 a.m.
I object to the opening of another centre 100 meters away from a beautiful C & K Centre. The teachers provide above and beyond care and education to our community of children. Their programme is far above any standard I have ever seen in any of the other centres. This additional centre would put an enormous pressure on the C & K Kindy and may mean shutting its doors. In such a socio-economic area it would be a HUGE loss for that community. To take away such a wonderful education and start to the families and children of this area. Please put the funding into the centres that have been providing an outstanding service for the last 40 years. Residents in the area have already been complaining for years about the traffic from local business, schools and centres. It will be unfair to the local residents to add more congestions and noise to such a peaceful area. If anything this would be a perfect location for a new and updated area for a community library to educate and support the people in this community. Please do not go ahead with the development of this additional centre.
