Please rethink this proposal! There are plenty of childcare centres in our area including a brand new C & K Daycare going ahead in Strathine near Office Works! Why do we need another especially being so close to an excellent well established C & K kindergarten a hop skip and a jump from this proposed centre. I dont want to think about the traffic it would cause on an already busy road, not to mention the parking of cars. I do believe you would have some very unhappy residences in the area! Come on guys it just doesnt make sense......Lets show some support for the traditional kindergarten that is already operating in the area that has provided and is providing the best starts to my 3 childrens educations.

Dear Sue,

Thank you for your email regarding the application for a Child Care Centre at 108 Bells Pocket Road, Strathpine.

Under the State Planning Act any person can apply for a Material Change of Use on any block of land in Queensland. Whether Council approves this application is another matter.

All applications are assessed by Council staff according to the Moreton Bay Regional Town Plan which has been approved by the State Government. In some cases an approval is made by the staff but in this case, as it is an Impact Assessable Application, it will come to Council for a final decision.

Before this assessment comes to Council, I, as an individual Councillor, am not permitted to comment either way as to my support or not of the application.

It is your right as a resident of the region to make a submission regarding the proposal. It must be addressed to:
