I object to the proposal for a new childcare centre. There is an ample supply of childcare in this area. An additional child care centre would bring with it more traffic, noise, and would be an overdevelopment of a residential area.

Dear Courtney,

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. I’ve included a copy of the Public Notification which appeared in the Pine Rivers Press. As you can see it must be addressed to the Assessment Manager and you have until the 9th June to lodge your submission.


To assist you, I have included a link to Council’s website to help ensure that your submission is properly made. This is important should you want to carry the matter further if you do not agree with the final decision made by Council.

I hope this information is of use.

Best wishes,
