Planning application at 108 Bells Pocket Road, Strathpine QLD 4500

I strongly object to the development of a childcare centre at this location, I live in this area an have done for 30 plus years, there is already childcare within 100m (on Brennan Pde) which provides quality care and education to Strathpine residents. Also there is another new childcare Centre getting built as we speak on Gympie Road next to Officeworks! Not to mention the other existing centre already on bell pockets road. If this one goes ahead it will be such an overkill. The traffic, the congestion, the noise will be horrendous. Strathpine has so many empty shops on the main road - build it there if you must.
Thank you for your email regarding the application for a Child Care Centre at 108 Bells Pocket Road, Strathpine.
