I share community concern over the location of the proposed service station and will not support the proposal. I understand it once was a motorbike repair shop with petrol bowsers. A service station would not be a good outcome considering proximity to a high population primary school and the childcare centre with its outdoor playspace facing to the street.
I am surprised to see an application for a service station at this location. A recent development for a car wash on the same site caused very similar community concerns around traffic safety and was withdrawn prior to making it to Council for determination.
The development application is an "AA" use which requires Council to exercise discretion, rather than simply being a permitted use. Council Members don't have a role in determining which, and when, applications are advertised, as this function is carried out by Administration who are obligated to advertise development applications prior to making a recommendation to Council.
I'll ask the Vincent Development Services staff when this application is likely to be considered by Council, and will let you know. I would be very happy to meet with concerned residents about the application.
